Halloween 3

Kew’s Millennium Seed Bank holds over 34,000 wild plant species and you can adopt one of them from just £25.

Here are a few of our deadly and disgusting choices...

With its poisonous roots and mythical shrill cry the mandrake is sure to give you a deathly fright. Click the Mandragora officinarum image below to learn more about this superstitious species.

Delirium and hallucinations are all consequences of the poisons in Atropa belladonna but it also has positive uses. Click below to make a deadly discovery.

When an insect is caught on this sticky sundew, the tentacles slowly fold in and trap it. Click on the link below to learn more about this meat-eating plant.
