This list of poisonous plants is only meant to provide orientation. It is not exhaustive as knowledge of chemical composition is quite insufficient. The toxicity levels are:-

  • Slightly poisonous - These are given so that their poisonousness is not overestimated.
  • Poisonous
  • Very poisonous
  • Extremely poisonous - Their inclusion in your garden scheme should be carefully considered.

A large amount of these slightly poisonous species would have to be eaten to lead to strong symtoms. Many species in these 4 poison types have such a repulsive taste, that it is hardly imaginable that children would voluntarily eat more than a few berries. The slightly poisonous, poisonous and very poisonous will lead to diarrhoea, vomiting, dizziness or headaches if their plant parts are eaten.

Extremely poisonous will kill you if eaten. You should see a doctor in any case.

Poisoning and Drug Overdose by Kent R. Olson, Ilene B. Anderson, California Poison Control System. Published by McGraw-Hill Professional, 2003. ISBN 0838581722, 9780838581728 644 pages. This may be the best manual on the diagnosis and treatment of poisoning and drug overdose. Plants by Judith A. Alsop, PharmD from pages 309 to 319 gives the common name and botanical name of the poisonous plant with its toxic effect and prehospital emergency measures.

The Poison Garden website originated from John Robertson's role as the first Poison Garden Warden at the Alnwick Garden.

A Guide To The Poisonous Plants And Weed Seeds Of Canada And The Northern United States by Robert Boyd Thomson, H. B. Sifton. University of Toronto Press, Published 1922.

The primary reason for this publication is the long-felt need of a text-book to accompany the course on poisonous plants which is given the students of the Ontario Veterinary College. This object has been kept constantly in mind. It has necessitated the preparation of a book at a price within the reach of every student, and yet one that contains in easily available form an up-to-date knowledge of our common poisonous plants, the characteristics by which they may be recognized, the symptoms produced by them and the remedial treatment required. It is hoped that the book will also prove useful to the veterinarian who is in practice, the farmer, the stockman and, to a more limited extent, the medical practitioner and the public generally.

 

Poisonous Plants of Pakistan by Abid Askari will be published in August 2010 about 158 poisonous plants. The author has collected, in one volume, information about the poisonous plants that can be found in Pakistan, which previously could only be found in scattered, specialized scientific papers. Detailed descriptions of the plants and how to avoid injury from them are accompanied by the authors own accurate illustrations which highlight the poisonous parts of each plant. There is also useful information on how to recognise the symptoms of poisoning and provide first aid.
