    I am so glad you posted this. Even though I am a landscaper and know the dangers of poisonous plants it is important from time to time to be slapped in the face with the consequences of plant tasting as I Often find myself tasting the plant to recognize its nature. I have so many friends and clients who have addressed this issue as well and will be glad to refer them here. Thank you so much for the incite on the dangers of tasting poisonous plants. You are a god sent for opening my eyes to the devil nature holds so dear. God bless you.
