the ginormous fragrant moonflower blooms at night. hummingbird moths come out & in the morning it’s covered with bees. we have it in the front in full sun and it’s about taken over one side of the garden. Also, it’s poisonous - part of the Belladonna nightshade family.

In early times, Datura was considered an aid to the incantation of witches, and during the time of the witch and wizard mania in England, it was unlucky for anyone to grow it in a garden. If Datura appears in cultivated crop areas, farmers say it is best to remove it completely to avoid any contamination. Although the seeds and leaves are considered the most toxic, all parts of the plant should be avoided. Some gardeners report a mild numbness in their fingers when in contact with the plant. - Reference

Jimson Weed Poisoning - The plant has been described throughout history as a toxin famous for its mind-altering properties. There are references to it in Homer’s Odyssey, and Shakespeare’s plays: Hamlet, Romeo and Juliet, and Anthony and Cleopatra.(2)

Waste House.
In collaboration with the University of Brighton, design studioBBM has created ‘The Brighton Waste House’ located at the college’s campus. It is the first permanent house in UK to be created out of discarded materials gathered from different places. To create the house, they used re-purposed wood and timber to construct the structure and furnished it with an estimated 20,000 toothbrushes, 2 tonnes of denim jeans, 4,000 DVD cases, 2,000 floppy discs and 2,000 used carpet tiles.
