ONL 177 – Hortus Venenum – The Poison Garden

There is indeed a real Poison Garden in this world – it is situated in Alnwick in UK. Spooky and sombre it cultivates all or at least many of the most poisonous plants in the world. I was very intrigued when I saw this (online) and made myself a note…

Choose the color of your fabric

Please note that this are not genuine fabric colors of any manufactuer. The colors have been hand-chosen by me, as they represent an array of colors which act as a decent, though emphasizing background for my intricate design. I strongly recommend to avoid any bold colored and/or mottled so-called "hand dyed" fabrics. Your months-long work on details and specialitles will be lost in any agitated background.

Stitching on an other fabric than white requires changing some yarn color. This will NOT be included in the design chart instructions!

Each arch contains a poisonour plant – so 12 in total with their botanical names backstitched in latin.

There are lots of details in the entire design – and lots of Special Stitches too. Tiny over-one parts, not too large, no worries ! Use of various threads, weights, fibers… beads, crystals and such stuff.

The overall size will be 384 x 384 stitches – so it fits into the range of the other gardens like Herbarium, Rosarium, Tinctorium, Pomarium…

  1. I love this so much! It is soooo gothic! However, is there any chance, if we ask nicely, that you could include the colour variations to stitch on black? You have an excellent, unparalleled eye for colour and would change these colours far better than we could.

  2. It is very beautiful. The colours are fantastic and I like the idea to stitch poisonous plants instead of roses. How can a garden of poisons be so beeatiful. It is the contradiction that makes it special. Very well done.
