When was the last time you saw a toddler pick something up off the floor and put it straight in their mouth? Probably fairly recently.

Unlike grown-ups who have a radar that asks what is it, where has it been, and what happen if I eat it, young children and pets will simply eat THEN think. So when was the last time you checked that your garden is child and pet proof when it comes to poisonous plants. 

Aquascapes and Landscaping might specialise in re-vamping, re-planning and re-organising gardens across the Stray FM area, but having been in many gardens over the years (and after a bad encounter with a vets bill after one dog ate something he shouldn't) they also know quite a bit about plants which could be a risk. 

Daffodils

Can cause headaches, vomiting, nausea. In extreme cases they have been fatal. They can also kill other flowers in the same vase.
