Holiday Plants and Pets

By December 23, 2013

Follow me on:

Earlier this month I mentioned that some holiday plants could be poisonous to people. Hopefully most people have enough sense not to munch on holly berries, but your pets might not. We all know how much our furry friends like a little snack during the day, so I'm passing along these holiday plant lists. Some plants, like poinsettia, have been given a bum rap, while others you might not think about, like amaryllis, can do a lot of harm. Check the lists and make sure your decorations are well out of reach from young children and pets.

Thanks for the list, very good information.
I will make sure that I keep my Amaryllis well out of reach of my dog Sam.
