As patricks noted, the stitch charts are virtually impossible to read - and I'm only 28! As noted they got wolfsbane badly wrong (and good heavens, Harry Potter taught us that one is Aconite if nothing else). I'm not sure what belladonna they used for their picture but it certainly wasn't Deadly Nightshade which is what is normally meant... There were a few fun, dark and twisted ideas but overall I found it pretty useless to me.

Interesting twists to classics if you are in the mood for rebelling, but the graphs are illegible (I presume it is to keep away those who by virtue of age did grow up on classic cross-stitch patterns...)
And the scientific name for wolfsbane is wrong wrong wrong! Instead of the most poisonous plant name , we get the name for a meek emollient used in sprains, Arnica.
All in all I preferred the now lost Victorian flower alphabet...
