This is the time of year when many green thumbs in Green Country plant their gardens.

But some plants are dangerous to pets if they eat them.

You'll want to keep dogs and cats away from flowers like lilies, daffodil, and tulips.

The bulbs are the most poisonous, and dogs like to dig them up.

"Night shade" grows all over. The plant, flowers, and berries can all be deadly.

"Sago" or "fern" palms cause liver damage, fast.

As far as fruits and vegetables go, stay away from anything related to garlic and onion, along with pitted fruits like apricots, cherries, and peaches.

Pets also can't have raw potatoes or tomatoes or their plants.
