i have this plant growing in my garden what i need to know
is are the grapes poisonous to koi carp as it is spreading over my pond and i dont want to cut it down if i dont have too thanks

On plant vitis vinifera purpurea



No the grapes wont poison your carp but not a good idea to have it growing over the pond. All the leaf debris will end up in the pond and rob it of oxygen which your fish need.

as mg says the grapes wont kill the fish. in fact some actually like eating them. but its a good houskeeping point to remove leaf debris as soon as you can.
