What are pet friendly plants?
You might be wondering.; what does the term 'pet friendly' actually mean? The answer is rather simple. Plants can be divided generally into two groups. Plants that are poisonous and plants that are not. Easy right? There is of course a little more to it than that and some plants are poisonous in other ways than you might think. There are poisonous leaves, berries but there's also the juice or sap that can be poisonous. When we find a plant that is not poisonous we will label that plant 'pet friendly' which makes it easy to spot on Plantsome. If you have small children and would like to enjoy some plants in between the diaper changes, then we also recommend getting pet friendly plants.
