Foxtail lily looks amazing, will add that to my wish list. My alliums were finished a couple of weeks back and I've had to cut all the heads off as the storms and torrential rain have flattened them all 😢

Same here x5 @sarahf ....I wish plant growers & florists etc would put warnings on flowers/plants more often. Some are vg but others...not so 😡 #cats #pets #poisonous

Hi @KatieCat - did you get foxtail's too? These are the ones with the roots that look like big spiders. Mines been in the ground outside all winter, they are fairly hardy but they don't like to be waterlogged.

Hi @richard.spicer.7906 I bought them when I was at Harrogate and have them in a tub at the moment

Hi @wizzykat @sarahf - is this still the same for non true Lillies, like this one (Eremurus)? - I thought that was only linked to true oriental or asiatic Lillies of the Lillium genus. 🤔

Hi @richard.spicer.7906 ...I'll check but pretty sure applies to all of lily family as well as other plants like poinsettias....In fact the list for child minders to avoid in their gardens is extensive so prob same for our pets #cats #dogs #pets #poisonous 😢
