hi I am not exactly a gardner but I have found a lot of plants this year I have just identified as devils trumpet (jimson weed) my question is should I get rid of it its growing everywhere and I have dogs and children, I am slightly worried after reading up on it.
if 'get rid' is recommended then what is the best method.
many thanks, 'worried parent'.



Datura stramonium is the proper name. Easy enough to pull out and bin.
