Darren, I bet there are many more poisonous plants in your garden that you didn't even know about. Many common garden plants are poisonous. Ricinus just has a bad rep thanks to russian spies. Many of us who grow them have pets and children but not one of them has dropped dead yet.

Derrick, You are better off planting them in single cells or pots. When they start to root they will tangle up and you will end up snapping the roots while trying to divide them.

Derrik, they will keep for a year or two so might be worth putting them away just in case you dont get seed from yours this year.
