Planting Veggies Near Oleander Trees

Anonymous added on January 22, 2011 | Answered

I was wondering if I can plant veggies (root and others) where Oleander trees used to be that have since been cut down to just a stump. Since these are poisonous trees, will the roots impact my garden and will I have poisonous veggies?

This should not cause a problem for your vegetable plants. The toxins are in the live oleander plant and break down when it dies so pose no theat.
