Our Feedback
Just to let you know my order of 5 plants arrived safely. I am really pleased with them as I have always wanted the more unusual plants instead of trying to grow from seeds but unfortunately I have not been able to source them within my local area. The service you provided was excellent, the packaging was sturdy, the delivery charge was very fair and they were delivered very quickly. I also appreciated that the plants had been watered well in preparation for their journey. Thank-you so much. Kind regards

Commonly known as Caper Spurge, their use as a mole deterrent has been known of for many years. Amazingly there has been no formal research on this purported property, though we have to say that from our own experience they do indeed work!

It is thought that the roots exude a scent into the soil that the moles do not like (and may also taint the flavour of worms making them unpalatable) - and so the moles relocate elsewhere.

The plant itself is a highly ornamental architectural plant with erect stems of glaucous-green long thin leaves.

  • Biennial, but will self seed.
  • Grows to approximately 4 feet (120 cm) tall.
  • Plant at 10 feet (3 metre) spacings for best effect.
  • All parts of the plant, including the seeds and roots are poisonous. Handling may cause skin irritation as the plant produces latex.
  • While poisonous to humans and most livestock, goats sometimes eat it and are immune to the toxin. However, the toxin can be passed through the goat's milk.
