Potent Plants: Ali Marshall

Join Head Gardener Ali Marshall for a talk and tour of Torre Abbey’s Potent Plants garden, inspired by Agatha Christie’s knowledge of plants and their medicinal powers – knowledge that Christie gained whilst working as a chemist during the First World War. A look at the many beautiful plants with the power to heal or harm, and an insight into the botanically-derived poisons used in Christie’s novels – from cyanide to ricin and opium. A garden to die for!
