Just a reminder to those new to Datura.

Summerville, SC(Zone 8a)

It's getting that time to start your seeds. For those new to growing datura, please be aware that all parts of datura are poisonous. Roots, stems, leaves, flowers and seeds. They contain the drugs atropine, scopolamine, and hyoscyamine in varying concentrations.

If you have small children or critters that like to sample plants or eat things off the floor, you must be extra vigilant about dropping seeds and keeping them away from the plants and make it a point to wash your hands after handling datura in any form.
