Blinds--Avoiding Toxic Plant Markers

  • Subject: [cg] Blinds--Avoiding Toxic Plant Markers
  • From: "Sharon Gordon" gordonse@one.net

Some time ago, I read (somewhere) a suggestion to cut up old venetian or mini-blinds for plant markers.  Several people quickly responded that this was to avoided as some (all?) of the blinds leached something toxic into the soil.
This suggestion has come up again, and I'd like to post some correct warning info.  Does anyone have current info on this?
