Growing onions near a laburnam tree

hampshire, United Kingdom Gb

We want to prepare an onion bed.
Is it safe to prepare one near a laburnam tree. The pods with their seeds fall quite prolifically in the area and wondered if they would poison/harm the soil?
Would be grateful for advice



hello~ no it shouldnt poison the soil. but if children eat the seeds they will suffer from a tummy upset. severity depending on age of child and number of seeds eaten.
welcome to GoY too.
