Moving into a house with Foxgloves?

Snap, Dove.

Did they prove that eating green potatoes whilst pregnant was the cause of Spina Bifida, or was that just a scare story.?

If you have grown potatoes with children, you are certainly safe with the beautiful foxglove.

i have just collected enough Aconitum seeds  to kill the population of a small island, no gloves, still here.

please, please don't get sucked in by the media, they call it confusion tactics, takes your mind of the really serious issues going on in the world.

have a lovely time in your new house, teach the children what they must not do, that's paddling and eating plants. All will be fine.

Tried that, they don't seem to care, I also put a 12" border of gravel right around the patio, it's for drainage really, but I thought the slugs wouldn't cross it because they don't like gravel clippings, they don't mind it at all!

We have those huge big ones, they were out the other night finishing off the bird food before OH could sweep it up.

the red lettuces are intact but then I have put a few slug pellets, suitable for edibles around them.

the red leaf dahlias are better but then again, a few slug pellets.

Nut, do the Aconitun flower at different times, it's the first flower out here, comes out with the foxgloves.
