Agree with Verdun that if we grew nothing toxic in the garden - we'd have little left to look at beyond grass, veg & roses.
I do find all the health warnings that now come on everything to be getting quite ridiculous. I am particularly hacked off that I can no longer buy chicken with giblets in at the supermarket because so many people cooked them with the plastic bag still inside
With plants it's just a case of being aware what's suitable for your circumstances - I don't grow tiger lilies because the pollen can be highly toxic to my cat but I grow everything else & just give it the respect it deserves.
I'm assuming the heads up about aconitum follows on from the death of the poor gardener reported this week - it is a beautiful family of plants but I will certainly handle them a bit more carefully in the future....
