Q.Monkshood Perennial Was Removed From A Flower Bed, I Am Making It A Vegetable Bed. Is Soil Safe.
I had Monkshood perennial in my flower garden for 2-3 years. I removed it from this spot because I want a vegetable garden there instead . Is my soil safe, now that plant was removed? It came out very easy. It has only been two days , but it is doing fine in its new spot away from my now vegetable garden.

I did find a notation not to plant it near a vegetable garden where plants with tubers were located. People might confuse the fleshy tubers of Monkshood with a vegetable such as Jerusalem artichokes. But I didn't see any reference to the poisons leeching into the soil.
