    Here in Denver, a good rule of thumb is that plants can go into the ground after Mother’s Day. We’re just under a month away, so it’s time to start thinking about what you’re going to plant in your garden this year. If you’re a dog owner, it’s also important to think about what plants are safe for dogs to be around.

    • Basil
    • Cilantro

Can they only grow in Denver or also other part of the world?

Hi Allison! It would really depend on where in the world, but I would assume they would grow just fine in anywhere that has a similar climate to Denver. I recommend looking up dog friendly plants that are safe for whenever you live!

Great research, I could never think that these plants are toxic for dogs. These plants are very common around the world. Thanks for sharing such useful information.
