Plants for my Russians?

I have two Russians that I adopted about a month ago. They were not kept in the best of condition (I adopted them from a very short-term job I had at a pet store--no UV light of any kind, pelletted diet, bad substrate) but now they're with me and seem very contented.

My question is about plants that I can put in their cage. I've seen the list at russiantortoise.org, but I was wondering if I bought plants from a nursery or garden center if they would be okay-- or are fertilizers a problem? I'm worried about planting in their setup from seeds because I think they'll eat anything as soon as it starts to sprout. Also, I'm the worst gardener ever so I don't know if I COULD grow anything from seeds.

Any suggestions on where you guys might get your plants from would be appreciated by me and the 'boys'-- I know when I take them outside they really like to laze in the grass and I was hoping to make them more comfortable in their tank.
