Me, too. I've seen other lists like this and thought "well, my fish are goners for sure!" Cardinal flower, elephant ears, buttercup, , milkweed, vinca, lily, sweet potato vine, IMPATIENS! Those all grow in my pond. EVERYONE grows these things in and around their ponds here. Heck, I grew cherry tomatoes in my bog one year and my fish feasted on tomatoes for a month. I think my fish are too dumb to know what's bad for them!
Not my list Lisa I just passed it on down the line to help others out , the people who put them togther must have their reasons for doing so , I'm wondering if its the root systems that could be poisonous to our fish no the acctualplants themselves ? :cconfused:.
Alice that I cant answer for you but more than probably yes .

There is no article as yet. We are just in the preliminary research phase of the project. I suspect that it will be months before it is ready to be published, but you can rely on the fact that it WILL BE accurate.


Meyer,
Has there been any progress on this list?
Thanks

Not as much as I would like. Seems that 'good help is hard to find' applies even to a project such as this. Lots of research for one person, on top of everything else. But it will be completed and it will be accurate. I can tell you this in advance that many will not accept the finished product. It will not be nearly as lengthy as those lists that are now available. Seems that most plants listed are not toxic to fish.
