This is what I got from Google:

English bluebell (Endymion non-scriptus) is an ornamental bulb plant that is grown outdoors and forced indoors for its early spring flowers. This species was formerly included under the genus Scilla. The plant contains glycosides, which are chemically similar to the cardiac glycoside digitalis. Cattle, a horse, and humans were poisoned after ingesting this plant. Children or family pets should be prevented from chewing the plants (Cooper and Johnson 1984).

I've got loads in my garden, but neither the cat nor the 4 year old have managed to chew them yet. I wouldn't worry too much about it.

Plant some deadlynightshade and some massed digitalis, and withhold fishpie and maybe soon she'd get the idea it's bad to eat plants which mummy hasn't said are OK.

LOL. Bad joke.

Well trained little one, I'd say.

If she wants to see some dumb-ass similies, find me later.
