Actually, that list should be a good deal longer.
I have and always have had most of those plants and a number of others that are known to be in the garden. It's never been an issue with the dogs or cats. :shrug: I would worry more about kids with a lot of them. I've even moved my aconitum (monkshood) plants when my neighbours grandkids were big enough to start taste testing some plants, just to be safe.

yes, the list should be long, but those were just the ones in the book,...
