In the UK, there is a Horticultural Trades Association, which maintains a
list of plant species known to be toxic, and has a "Code of recommended
retail practice relating to the labeling of potentially harmful plants".

For more information, you might contact Dr. Liz Dauncey in the UK;  her
phone number is listed as 020-8332 5699.

This is mentioned in the April 2000 issue of a newsletter, Kew Scientist.
