I'd use organic fertilizers - These include organic materials such as:
chicken manure, and feathers, for nitrogen;
composted guano, and rock phosphate, for phosphates;
seaweed meal for potassium;
bone meal for phosphates and calcium.

The best source of information on non-toxic plants is the ASPCA website:
