Hello!

Quick question, I can't find any information on whether Japanese Laurel is okay with piggies and wondered if anyone knew?

I don't intend to feed it to them, but have planned to get some in a large flower bed next to where we're planning to put down a lawn which eventually the piggies can go on.

Basically, if the occasional stray leaf got onto the lawn and they found and ate it, would it be a problem?

I've read it can cause mild stomach upset in humans but can't find anything about piggies.

The odd stray leaf won't kill, I'd think! Just keep an eye out like I do and pick up any dodgy leaves in the run area before you put your piggies outside.
