Poisonous indigenous plants

I have never come across a child or an adult sitting down to a meal of a poisonous bulb, leaves or seeds, but we are often asked about plants that are poisonous to horses and dogs! If you are worried, please call the Poison Centre on 0800333444 for advice.

 

Abrus precatorius  Lucky Bean. This climber produces beautiful seed clusters of red and black seeds. They are often made into bracelets and necklaces. A single seed is considered fatal, however if a seed is swallowed whole, it wall pass through the system as the seed coat is very hard.
