Arum maculatum poisoning
Herbaceous plants that produce toxic berries, such as the cuckoo pint (arum) could have their flowers removed to stop berries forming. The leaves and sap of this plant are toxic, too.

The return of Winter here in the far north has put a stop to any further planting-out for the time being. Yesterday the temperature peaked at a miserable 8°C with a strong north wind. Much too cold to be of any use to a garden.  Where's my share of Global Warming?
