Poison Gardens

I’ve been fascinated by poisonous plants for I don’t know how long. Then one day I discovered The Alnwick Garden ‘Poison Garden’, which made me want to have a poison garden all of my own! I think people would be surprised at how many everyday plants that are currently hanging out in our gardens are actually poisonous to one degree or another. Some might just give your skin a slight burn or blisters, others can outright kill you if eaten.

On this page I’ll list the different types of poisonous plants so that we can all either make our own poison gardens or make sure none of these are in our gardens. The choice is yours.
