Chico2 we didn't know they were poisonous either, you'd think the vendor might have mentioned it!!
I just noticed hubby's trowel in the plant pot - this is what retired bricklayers do with their trowels.... they garden.
Vendors do not have to mention what plants are poisonous. When I sold to the public I did. I did not want anyone dying because of plants I sold. Although I do believe some tags will mention if the plants are poisonous.
The plants (Brugmansia botanically) are in the Datura family which are extremely poisonous. We usually have two or three kids in town grab the seeds of the Datura and get high on them. It's a deadly deadly game they play. I know one or two are now basically brain dead because of it. Operating well below their age level. It's pretty sad.
Retired brick layers have to use their tools some how!!
