From poisonous plants to poison gardens, gothic garden murder mysteries, and tragic tales of plant hunters, the garden is full of fatalities. In the midst of the hum and buzz of garden life we are stalked by dangers and beset with metaphors of momento mori. A Garden of Eden replete with serpent and wolfsbane. Taking inspiration from horticulture, history and literature we will explore the ways in which gardens and plants can literally be a “fatal attraction”. You may never dare to go into your garden again!
