Dd2 has eaten some berries from our hedge in the front garden, i pulled a few out of her mouth but im unsure how many she has eaten. I hav'nt got a clue what berries they are, there were 2 types, yellow and red. How do i know if they are poisonous or not?
I have just googled yew berries (ar'nt they the most poisonous?), they arn't yew berries, they are a darker red, not as round (slightly oval shape) and orange in the middle. Im not as worried about the yellow ones (i think she ate a couple of these)
Pick a sample of leaves and berry. Phone NHS direct. IIRC they have a database that can identify plants by process of elimination - they just ask you a series of questions. (Remember hearing about it on the radio a while back, so hopefully it is now 'live' and available).
Most berries are bitter and horrible so unlikely she'd consume much. Hope it's a false alarm.
