Plants for the use of assassination...

Members were delighted to learn of the many ways from which poisons could be made from quite simple plants that you can buy from your local Garden Centre. Paul Rolph started his presentation by saying the main trick is to choose a poison which can be administered but still leaves you time to get away. Depending on the nature of your assassination death can be painfully lingering (as in the case of the 16th century Italian widows society) or else remarkably instant. Paul favoured the Belladonna (or deadly nightshade plant) as being the most effective for getting the job well done.
