Common sense applies in gardening as in all other aspects of life and living with other poeple. Aconitums are a valuable and ornamental addition to my garden and I've always had them. I trained my daughter as a bairn not to put anything from the garden in her mouth unless I'd told her it was OK so she happily learned to raid the blueberries, raspberries, strawberries, blackberries, redcurrants, herbs and salads in the veggie plot but knew not to touch anything in the ornamental garden.
Her friends were told the same and I never had any problems - apart form finding all the fruit had gone and there was none left for pud!
