This accessible guidebook is the result of a long-standing collaboration between the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew and the Medical Toxicology Information Services at Guy's and St Thomas' Hospital, London. Helpful descriptions and more than 230 photographs will assist you in identifying 130 of the most poisonous plants likely to be encountered as pot plants, in flower beds and vegetable plots, and in more natural environments. The toxins contained in each plant (especially in plant parts that are attractive to children) and the likely symptoms should they be inadvertently touched or eaten are explained. Poisonous Plants provides crucial information for anyone caring for children, and for educators, medics, sellers of plants and flowers, gardeners and those responsible for plants in public places. It will enable you to assess the potential risks posed to children by toxic plants and provides ideas for designing and planting a safe environment.
