I fertilize mine too, with bone meal, blood meal and epsom salt. Fertilizing them just adds nitrogen, potassium and phosphorus to the plant. Neither is a pesticide.

Plants that are fertilized (w/organic or inorganic feed) are not harmful to either animals or humans and are approved for consumption, so feel free to offer their petals to your tortie...

The concerns about organic farming is always about the use of pesticides, not plant feed. All the plant feed affects is the quality and amount of the product. Like, too much nitrogen produces too many leaves in blooming plants, too much phosphorus stunts the plants growth, etc.
