Poisenous Plants in your back garden

After roaming around the wilderness I thought id look up some plants, you would be so suprised how many common plants are bad for kitties. here a just a few really common one which are also poisenous to horses and dogs. If your a pet owner and looking to do some gardening this spring maybe you'll avoid these:

English IvyVomiting, abdominal pain, hypersalivation, diarrhea. Foliage is more toxic than berries 

Horse Chesnut or conker tree: Severe vomiting and diarrhea, depression or excitement, dilated pupils, coma, convulsions, wobbly 

The cherry TreeStems, leaves, seeds contain cyanide, particularly toxic in the process of wilting: brick red mucous membranes, dilated pupils, difficulty breathing, panting, shock. 

Daffodils: Vomiting, salvation, diarrhea; large ingestions cause convulsions, low blood pressure, tremors and cardiac arrhythmias. Bulbs are the most poisonous part.  

Hyacinth : Vomiting, diarrhea, dermatitis and allergic reactions. Bulbs contain highest amount of toxin. 

ALL Lillies: only applies to cat's it's highly toxic and causes kidney failure, not even a good idea to have them in your house as flowers as they transfer there pollen very easily! 

And there's a lot more than just these.... and now i'm scared :( meow.
