Join Michael Brown as he takes us through the myths and legends that surround poisonous plants. Over the centuries poisonous plants have been used to remove an unwanted partner or rival, as aphrodisiacs, for pest control and the means to foretell the future or speak with the god.
Michael is a qualified gardener, has been a full-time college lecturer in Horticulture and has now transformed into the ‘Historic Gardener’. His research into medieval gardens and the uses of the plants, proved very useful when he created the medieval gardens at the Prebendal Manor at Nassington, Northamptonshire.
Michael’s book ‘Death in the Garden’ was published in March 2018
