Max's Garden

Plant lists

Plant lists

These plants are ones to which Max has free access:

Some of the plants appear on one or more of the lists of toxic plants (#) but are ones where Max has shown no interest (or if he has in the past he didn't like the taste!) or where plant does not appear to be very toxic.

  • Apple# (worth noting that pips are toxic so it is necessary to stop Max eating windfalls. He loves slices of apple as a beneficial treat and sees windfalls as an opportunity)
