It wasn't until I was about ready to plant and looking at the packet for a second time that a bell started ringing in my head. I turned it over and sure enough, there in very small print was the warning that foxglove was poisonous if ingested. With the small tornado enthusiastically eating grass beside me, the seeds were quickly disposed of in the bin.
So what is foxglove, apart from quite pretty?
