Our Feedback
Good morning, I have just received my first delivery from you (various vegetable plants) and wanted to say how pleased I am with the quality of the plants you sent me! The plants arrived on the day you said they would, carefully packed and in very good condition. They were larger than I was expecting which made planting them really easy. Thank you too for the helpful information about planting enclosed with each plant as well. I shall be recommending you to all my friends and family! Your website is very good too!

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.
