    DefaultOutdoor Plants that are Dangerous for Doggies

    Spring is here and the new plants are popping out all over. We recently put up a new dog area on the large side of the yard. However, it use to have daylillies. They don't get to even break the ground, as the dogs have mowed them over. I'm afraid they may be dangerous in some way. Especially the bulb parts ?? Anyone know more about the dangers of the daylillie to dogs ?? Does anyone have a link to explain more about it. ?? Thanks.

    I think Lilies are poisonous as well as many other bulb plants...this is a cool website.

    This was in my email from dog age tip of the week.*


    Gardeners who use cocoa mulch unwittingly put dogs at risk.

    The mulch is made from the hulls of cocoa beans and contains theobromine, an ingredient also found in chocolate, which can be harmful to dogs. Attracted by the scent, some dogs eat the mulch, consuming quantities large enough to be toxic. To keep your dog safe and your garden green, use bark mulch as an alternative.

    Thanks for the link rayofsun. I just looked at it and it looks like the brand new four o'clocks that I planted last year need to come out. :'( I love for o'clocks. Although my second favorite lilacs are not on the list. yippee.... ;D
