The Poison Garden

The Poison Garden is located at the Alnwick Garden in England. Surrounded by black iron gates, this side garden attraction is filled with one hundred deadly and toxic plants. It was created by Jane Percy, who became Duchess of Northumberland after the death of her brother. Upon her husband and her arrival, her husband suggested that she should plan something for the garden which was filled with Christmas trees. In 1996, Jacques Wirtz, a landscape architect, was hired to design her garden. Percy wanted a garden that differed from the typical landscapes of England, so when she had learned of lethal plants, she planned out the Poison Garden. According to her, “I thought, ‘This is a way to interest children,'”…..”Children don’t care that aspirin comes from a bark of a tree. What’s really interesting is to know how a plant kills you, and how the patient dies, and what you feel like before you die.”‘ (  Some of the plants in the garden include the mortal plants, hemlock, foxglove, and Brugmansia. For the public’s safety, some plants are caged up to prevent fatalities and injury.
