Green Thumb Fail?

Posted: May 20th, 2012 | Author: | Filed under: Living in the City | Tags: Gardening | No Comments »

Yesterday my sisters and I were out weeding my mom’s gardens and she mentioned that if I wanted, I could take all the Foxglove that was spreading like crazy.

So I did.

And then I planted it- mostly in the front yard but a few in the backyard where the kids play. After three people on Facebook reminded me Foxglove is pretty poisonous (which I kind of knew) I went out and ripped everything out of the back as well as everything that was along the path where the boys usually walk.

I don’t think that they would eat it, but I guess with them I never really know. Lincoln is in a “let’s sit down and look at the flowers” phase, and I would hate for him to pop a pretty yellow bloom in his mouth and have something terrible happen.

So what else should I be avoiding? Right now we’re pretty full up on Hostas, Day Lilies, Spiderwort, and Ferns with a smattering of Grape Hyacinth, Summer Cheer Dandelions and Allium.

Anything you’d recommend to fill in the blanks between my Hostas? I like things to spread!
