Anyone who knows me well knows I am “a worrier,” an “over-protective mom” of three, so it was important to me to be educated and keep my kids and dog safe when I garden.
This was my main motivation for creating a green and organic yard and garden, as I learned that most kids absorb those nasty chemicals through their skin rather than ingest them through what they eat or drink. They absorb it from running barefoot in their own backyard so I am careful not to grow anything that could irritate or harm them in any way.
I have read again and again to steer clear of the following poisonous plants:
Gibsonii Castor Bean
Angel Trumpet, also know as Datura or Brugmansia
