 Over the centuries poisonous plants have been used to remove an unwanted partner or rival, for medicine, aphrodisiacs, pest control, foretelling the future or to commune with the gods. Learn from Michael Brown the truth about many of these plants which may well be growing in your garden!

Michael has been a Head Gardener, a college lecturer and designed the medieval gardens at Prebendal Manor, Nassington. His book Death in the Garden: Poisonous Plants & Their Use Throughout History was published in 2018.

There is a charge of £2.50 for members and visitors. This goes towards the cost of speakers and Hall hire, as well as for the tea and biscuits that are included.
