Poisonous Plants

Poisonous Plants
Some poisonous plants have poisonous fruits while others have poisonous foliage or may induce skin rashes if touched. Despite the necessary warning to prevent people eating or, in some cases, touching poisonous plants, there are many which make very attractive garden plants and are well worth growing. These poisonous plants are separately coded in our catalogue according to the type of risks involved.
