Poisonous Plants for Dogs

Now that spring is here, our garden is getting a makeover…weeds are getting pulled, Pepsi & Pepper’s own little retreat is getting made (Yes I know, spoilt pooch’s – photo’s coming soon), flowers getting potted, and getting the lawn ready for summer.

So before going to our local hardware/plant nursery to purchase more plants/flowers, I looked into what plants are poisonous to dogs. I thought I would share with you some of the plants/flowers on the list:

– Cyclamen (Cyclamen sp.)

– Amaryllis (Hippeastrum sp.)

– Aronkelch (Zantedeschia aethiopica)

– Azalea (Rhododendron simsii)

– Tree Friend (Philodendron sp.)

– Begonia, Schiefblatt (Begonia sp.)

– Bogenhanf (Sansevieria trifasciata)

– Buntwurz (Caladium bicolor)

– Christ thorns (Euphorbia milii)

– Dragon Tree (Dracaena drago)

– Epipremnum aureum (Scindapsus spec.)

– Plank (Spathiphyllum floribundum)

I would hate for something to happen to Pepsi or Pepper out in the garden, so now I can rest easy I have the list printed out, so when I pop into the garden centre I can refer to my list.Image
