Nice one Jenn - a lot of back breaking work - well done!  Yes deadly Nightshade comes to mind.  I am way to far away from them at the moment, Tom, but I will try and find a typical photo in a search.

Ahh yes, Deadly Nightshade is the garden weed with the green berries turn deep purple. 

Foxgloves was the name of the plant (well as I was told by Dad and he did Horticulture for 4 years), and yes they are poisonous - digitalis. 

Hmmm, all of the photos just show the tall pretty flower stem but not the bulky leaves I knew.

This site here has pictures of them ... https://www.terrain.net.nz/friends-of-te-henui-group/weeds/foxglove-purple-digitalis-purpurea.html

But I remember more thicker foliage than that - more like Jenny's garden.

Its interesting doing research!!

Sure is... I have lots of foxgloves that pop up from time to time.  Woolly Nightshade grows rampant in places in Taranaki, especially council land. Like opposite my house, on a bank....
