I have a rhododendron next to my vegtable garden. Is it safe to eat vegtables that were grown next to a rhododendron?

I can't imagine why it wouldn't be safe. What gives you cause for concern?

Welcome to NGA, @Csibi .

Your question prompted me to search the internet for toxicity of rhododendrons and I found this interesting article:

I think as long as you don't eat any parts of the plant itself, there will be no problem with eating veggies grown near it. Smiling
