Tourists love the "deadliest in the world" garden.
The "deadliest in the world" garden is a popular tourist attraction.
In the UK, the garden, known as "the deadliest in the world" (The Poison Garden), has become a popular tourist destination. It contains only plants that are dangerous to humans, so it is possible to visit it only with a guide.
The garden, which is loved by tourists, is located in the British county of Northumberland and is only part of the Alnwick garden. The entrance to the dangerous alleys is blocked by a gate with the inscription "These plants can kill you." While walking in the garden, tourists are strictly forbidden to smell, touch or taste the plants. It is noted that some guests fainted while inhaling the vapors of some flowers.
In the garden there are about a hundred "poisonous, intoxicating and narcotic" plants, including beautiful flowers with deadly berries, leaves and stems. The idea to lay out such a garden came from the Duchess of Northumberland, who sought to abandon ordinary herbs. However, head gardener Trevor Jones said that many of the garden's dangerous inhabitants have become familiar to guests.
“These are ordinary plants. Many of them we call indoor or garden, they grow in gardens. But no one knows about their danger, ”Jones said. To care for the plants, staff must wear special protective suits.
