Spring Planting Around Pets

Posted by Jennifer Smith on

Spring is one of the best times of year to begin growing flowers in the garden. After all, the garden looked so dead in the wintertime - it will be refreshing to see a rainbow full of blooms. When gardening, we are quick to think about keeping our plants away from deer and other wildlife; but we sometimes forget about our pets. Some springtime plants should be kept away from dogs and cats because they make them very ill and cause upset stomachs, wobbly legs, salvation and high blood pressure. Here are some spring plants to keep away from pets:

  • Geraniums
  • Iris
  • Daffodils
  • Begonias
  • Sago Palms
  • Lilies
  • Tulips
  • Buttercups
  • Hyacinths

Some of these plants are considered to be deer-resistant flowers that deer hate the taste and smell of; however, they are also harmful to dogs and cats. Be sure to watch pets when they are playing in the yard around these plants; and take them to the vet should problems arise.
