  1. Niezsynchronizowane
    (Music)
  2. Niezsynchronizowane
    Atropa belladonna will kill you.
  3. Niezsynchronizowane
    Datura will put you to sleep, forever.
  4. Niezsynchronizowane
    Aconitum will kill you.
  5. Niezsynchronizowane
    Laurel will produce cyanide and kill you.
  6. Niezsynchronizowane
    (Music)
  7. Niezsynchronizowane
    Every plant here in The Poison Garden is
  8. Niezsynchronizowane
    poisonous, and has the ability to kill you.
  9. Niezsynchronizowane
    My name's Trevor Jones, and I'm the Head Gardener of Alnwick Garden.
  10. Niezsynchronizowane
    This plant is Giant hogweed.
  11. Niezsynchronizowane
    It will get up to around about 8 ft high.
  12. Niezsynchronizowane
    It's phototoxic, so will burn you skin,
  13. Niezsynchronizowane
    and give you blisters for up to 7 years.
  14. Niezsynchronizowane
    This garden is set in the wall garden of the
    old castle
  15. Niezsynchronizowane
    in Northumberland, UK.
  16. Niezsynchronizowane
    We have around about 95 plants,
  17. Niezsynchronizowane
    and we're adding to that collection
    all the time.
  18. Niezsynchronizowane
    This plant is Aconitum, or monkshood.
  19. Niezsynchronizowane
    Wonderful blue flowers, but the whole of
    the plant is poisonous.
  20. Niezsynchronizowane
    The berries, crushed up and fed to
    you will kill you.
  21. Niezsynchronizowane
    The leaves themselves will kill you also,
  22. Niezsynchronizowane
    as will the root and the stem.
  23. Niezsynchronizowane
    We have to, obviously, maintain the garden,
  24. Niezsynchronizowane
    so we have to tend the plants, and when we
    do that,
  25. Niezsynchronizowane
    we have to be very careful of the way we operate,
  26. Niezsynchronizowane
    so we have to cover some of our skin
  27. Niezsynchronizowane
    when we deal with particularly dangerous plants.
  28. Niezsynchronizowane
    This plant is Laurel, it produces cyanide,
  29. Niezsynchronizowane
    and you know what that will do to you.
  30. Niezsynchronizowane
    So, it was the brainchild of the Dutchess,
  31. Niezsynchronizowane
    the Dutchess of Northumberland,
  32. Niezsynchronizowane
    so rather than having a herb garden,
  33. Niezsynchronizowane
    she decided to create more interesting,
  34. Niezsynchronizowane
    and have a poison garden.
  35. Niezsynchronizowane
    They are very, very common plants.
  36. Niezsynchronizowane
    In fact, a lot of them are what we call
    "cottage garden" plants.
  37. Niezsynchronizowane
    And they're grown in many people's gardens,
  38. Niezsynchronizowane
    but people don't know how harmful they
    actually are.
  39. Niezsynchronizowane
    This is Atropa belladonna.
  40. Niezsynchronizowane
    Four berries are enough to kill a child.
  41. Niezsynchronizowane
    People are intrigued by poisonous plants,
  42. Niezsynchronizowane
    and often are very worried when they
    come out, because
  43. Niezsynchronizowane
    many of them will be growing these
    plants at home, and they
  44. Niezsynchronizowane
    don't realize the powerful impact
    that's going
  45. Niezsynchronizowane
    to have on us as humans.
  46. Niezsynchronizowane
    Is it something that you find fascinating?
  47. Niezsynchronizowane
    Definitely.
  48. Niezsynchronizowane
    Why?
  49. Niezsynchronizowane
    It's a good way to get rid of your life.
  50. Niezsynchronizowane
    (Laughs)
  51. Niezsynchronizowane
    My god!
