Welcome to the killer garden
A garden in England called ‘the world’s deadliest’ has become a tourist hotspot, but you can only visit with a guide.
The Poison Garden is part of The Alnwick Garden in Northumberland.
The garden is hidden behind huge iron gates and a sign under a skull and cross bones that says ‘these plants can kill’.
Visitors to the garden, who must be escorted by a guide, are prohibited from smelling, touching or tasting any plants – with some unlucky tourists fainting after inhaling the fumes while walking around.
The garden is home to around 100 ‘toxic, intoxicating, and narcotic’ plants. Staff have to don hazmat suits just to tend to some of the more potent plants.
Head gardener, Trevor Jones, said of the garden’s leafy residents: “They’re very common plants. In fact, a lot of them are what we call cottage garden plants and they’re grown in many people’s gardens but people don’t know how harmful they actually are.”
