Alnwick Poison Gardens – These Plants Can Kill You – Weirdness Wednesdays July 3, 2019

I was strolling through Atlas Obscura earlier today and found a strange entry that I thought qualified for Weirdness Wednesdays – Alnwick Poison Gardens – These Plants Can Kill You – Weirdness Wednesdays July 3, 2019: Some of the plants can kill you by sniffing them, or at a minimum knock you out.

A few years back I was at the Sedgwick County Zoo – and I saw a warning in one of the exhibits that said don’t touch the plants as some are poisonous.
