Toxic Garden & Stinky Plants
Did you know there’s a toxic garden in Northumberland, UK? It’s located near Alnwick (Ah-Nick) castle which is the same castle that hosted Harry Potter and Downton Abbey! We also touched on carnivorous plants like the Venus Fly Trap and the Pitcher Plants that feast on flies and perhaps even ground beef. Finally, we dived into the carrion flower that stinks up select conservatories around the globe. When it blooms, it attracts more than just pollinators like carrion beetles. People will flock to witness the sights and smells of this gigantic flower as it will only bloom for up to 48hrs. In Canada, you can see them in Ontario, Vancouver, and Edmonton.
