Pet owners are being warned to take note of the 24 vegetables, flowers and herbs available from Woolworths as some of them are dangerous if accidentally consumed by your pets.
While most of the plants have been deemed safe, some of the Discovery Garden varieties are mildly toxic or toxic to the furry friend in your world.
“There are many household and gardening items that can be toxic for pets, including common pantry items like chocolate,” a Woolworths spokesperson said.
“While the herbs and vegetables in the Woolworths Discovery Garden are perfectly safe for human consumption, we discourage customers from feeding or allowing their pets to consume the flowers, herbs, or vegetables in the collection.
“Customers should also consult their veterinarian if they are unsure what foods are suitable for their pets.”
