Poisonous Plants in the Ornamental Garden

  • Wednesday, August 26, 2020, 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM

Presented by Master Gardener, John Nelson. Hosted by Central Library of Rochester & Monroe County.

Many of our favorite ornamental garden plants are poisonous and some have fascinating histories!

You may be surprised to learn that there are poisonous plants growing in your garden. Join us online for our next gardening workshop and learn about a common shrub whose pollen produces toxic honey, and another called the “Tree of Death!” The speaker will provide some common sense precautions to safely grow these plants in your garden.
