Dog friendly plants for your garden.

Spending time with your dog out in the garden is one of life’s great joys. However, when it comes to deciding what to put in said garden, you need to be careful about the plants you choose. Some plants contain toxins that are harmful to dogs, and are liable to cause them to suffer problems like vomiting and diarrhoea. Not exactly the picture of a blissful summer day.

We’ve already covered houseplants that are pet-safe, now the experts at have helped us put together a list of pet-safe plants that live outside and how to care for them. They also suggest that, if your dog has a habit of misbehaving in the garden, you should try adding specific play routes if yours is big enough, such as a designated digging area (think sandpit) away from your lovely blooms, with different types of textured soil underfoot

Sow: March-April Plant: March-May Flowers: July-October Michaelmas Daisies, aka asters, make a very cute addition to any garden and come in shades of blue, white, purple and pink. The team at Tails say these guys grow in moist but well-drained soil in full sun to partial shade, and that they should be cut back after flowering.
