Woolmans, D T Brown & Johnsons seeds are all owned by Mr Fothergills. So they should be OK.

The only plants that I have ever heard of being toxic to cats are members of Lilium family.

Even then I believe the only cases of poisoning have been when the cut flowers have been indoors & the cat has brushed against the pollen & then licked it from it's fur.

Datura are actually short lived perennials but are usually considered annuals in the UK.

If your plants are seed raised you need to take the cuttings above the fork in the trunk as this is adult wood, where the flower buds form, this will give you bushier plants that flower earlier.

Parsnip problems!

Jenny did you sow the seed direct into the soil? I have seen parsnips like this when people have sown them in trays & then transplanted them later.
