We recently moved into a house and inherited a garden in which a patch of rhubarb is growing adjacent to a border of Hellebore. As we know that all the parts of the Hellebore are poisonous and as both the rhubarb and Hellebore roots share the same soil’s nutrients, we were wondering: is this too close for comfort for the consumption of the rhubarb sticks?
Any advice you could give would be much appreciated.

|I don't think the adjacent plants affect the toxicity of the next one.
I would use the rhubarb.

|Although they are sharing the same garden space, they are not sharing anything else. Use the rhubarb.
