Death in the Garden – Poisonous Plants & Their Use Throughout History

This is not a scary book, although people do die in it. The author puts many fears around certain poisonous plants into perspective by educating us about them. He does this in a chatty manner with lots of examples from ancient history to more modern history, and from the starting point of, ‘most plants are poisonous, what’s important is the dose’. This type of education and the sharing of knowledge is how we learn about poisonous plants.

I really enjoyed reading this book. I finished it more knowledgeable than I was when I started, and I was entertained at the same time. That’s a great way to learn and to relax. I would have no problems recommending this book to other gardeners, and also to those people who are looking for a gift that is a bit different, either for themselves or for a friend. Whether you are a gardener or not, I’m sure you will find this book a fascinating read.
