CUTTINGS/PLANTS

Angels trumpet tree(brugsmansia..apricot...

Wormwood - absinthe variety


A Highly Toxic Plant
Angel's Trumpet is a member of the Nightshade family. It includes tomatoes, potatoes, and petunias. All parts of the plant are toxic. It is recommended that gardeners use gloves when working with this plant.
Historically, it has been used as a hallucinogenic drug. It is a dangerous drug, that has caused many deaths, especially from teenagers experimenting with it after hearing rumors about it's hallucinogenic powers. It is most often ingested in the form of a tea.
If you have children or pets, we highly recommend you seriously consider the risks before growing this plant.

I have to say something about the Angels trumpet.
These are beautiful plants.

Oleander are everywhere, and they are just as poisonus. People have died from making fires out of the wood.
Potato seeds are the same, rhubarb leaves, celery leaves can be toxic to some people. Half the weeds growing wild are toxic.
Toadstills, even a fungus that grows on wheat can kill, apple seeds, apricot seeds, cherry seeds and the list goes on.

As with everything in the world, we just have to be cautious.

Hi,

I have seeds avail for garlic chives and sweet mini capsicums. Plants have just gone to seed so they are very viable. I'm happy to send them out if you send me a stamped self addressed envelope.

Cheers
Naomi

I don't know if I am posting in the right place but my 10 yo son is a mad succulent grower and always begging me to ask if anyone has succulent cuttings he can have. The more grotesque, unusual or just plain out uncommon the better.

We can pay for postage.

TIA

Hi Michelle,
When potatoes have grown and they are nearly ready to harvest (sometimes before) they devlop long sort of stalks with three or four round seeds hanging off a bit like cherries, except these start off green and usually are the size of salsa tomatoes, actually, they look a lot like yellow salsa tomatoes with the paper removed.
Did you get that ? :hmmm:

Yeah Ive grown potatoes before and have never seen that :? When it comes to planting our seed so to speak is the potato cut up into segments with eyes on them. Thats what got me confused I guess, I couldnt see how our "seed" was poisonous when it was just potato :lol: Thanks!

I have a double white blossom tree dahlia (Dahlia imperialis) that is available. I'm about to cut down the canes and will be happy to mail cuttings with a couple of nodes that ought to shoot. PM me if you are interested.
