The Poison Garden of Alnwick

Inside the beautiful Alnwick Garden, behind a locked gate, there’s the Poison Garden: it contains only poisonous plants. Trevor Jones, head gardener, was kind enough to give a guided tour!

For more information about visiting the Castle, Garden, and poison garden:

(And yes, it’s pronounced “Annick”.)

    My word, there are a lot of pro-marijuana people in the comments. Just to be clear: it's in a cage because British law requires it to be. The khat they grow is too, but not the opium poppies – but because those were just tiny shoots when I was there, they didn't make the edit. And yes, "poison" is a bit strong, but for anyone who's convinced there are no dangers to cannabis, I refer you to Foreman, JE (2000) — although of course, that's worth comparing with his later 2014 work for balance.

    I do love British law sometimes.
    Belladonna, Mandragora, Monks Hood and Angel Trumpet can be in the open, but we better keep that cannabis in a cage.

    In my primary school there were nightshade berries that grew in an area that was only for 5-6 year olds. One kid got sent to hospital after eating one, and he was absent for months.

    Pretty sweet how aristocrats in the 18th century had more freedom to use hallucinogenics than I do in the 21st century. progress

    Also I would advise using an air tight tank around the cannabis as the very vapors could send even the strongest of men in to a downward spiral of insanity.
