The Poison Garden
March 9, 2005 12:38 PM   Subscribe

Alnwick Castle, used in various films including Harry Potter and Robin Hood, has started planting the Poison Garden as part of its most recent additions (pdf). The Poison Garden includes belladonna and other examples of the worlds most deadly plants. Some specimens are kept behind bars for security purposes. Both the castle and the extensive garden seem like wonderful places to visit.

My wife has a Poison Garden, but we don't live in a castle.

Educational my arse. I like how the first "poison" to be named after the word "deadly" in the AFP article is cannabis...

And how come the Duchess of bloody Northumberland is allowed to grow cannabis for what is essentially a tourist attraction anyway? If I try it I could end up behind bars for 14 years.

But Alnwick Castle is indeed a very good place to visit, although rather overrun with little kids wanting to play Harry Potter.
