I reckon hemlock will be in the mix too being known since ancient times. Indeed, Socrates was offered exile or death by hemlock, he chose hemlock. A simple mixture of hemlock, monkshood and digitalis will see off all-comers. Many other plants are poisonous. Its not actually that hard if you know your plants and fungi. (Destroying Angel, Death Cap) There is cyanide in laurel leaves and yew berries, and the strongest being ricin, from caster oil plants and I think maybe flax. The world's most famous nerve poison. On a par with novochok 5 and VX anyway. Chemical nerve agents. Will you be doing the Tokyo tube attack? Great show.
