Utica, NY (WIBX) – As the weather warms up, gardens will soon be in full bloom. However, the Cornell Cooperative Extension of Oneida County wants you to know not all plants are meant to be eaten.

The group lists several common garden favorites as “eye candy” only, including bleeding hearts, Lily of the Valley, and delphinium. All parts of these plants are poisonous.

Other plants, such as rhubarb and sweet pea, have pieces that are edible, but still must be treated carefully to avoid becoming sick from them.

For more information about poisonous plants, visit Cornell University’s website here.

Also, Master Gardener Volunteers can answer gardening questions on Wednesday and Friday from 9-noon, by calling 736-3394, or visiting cceoneida.com.
