Are all solanum shrubs poisonous, my friend has one growing over her garden wall and is worried about the berries falling into her garden as she has young grandchildren. I do not know its full name but it has blue flowers and I think white berries



The majority of the solanum family are toxic exceptions being tomato and aubergine. The grandchildren need to be taught not to eat any berries from the garden without checking with an adult first. If they are too young to know how to ask they are too young to be in the garden on their own.
