  1. I am growing this plant for the first time this year, Helen, and am impressed with the size, seed pods, leaf shape and the pretty flowers. Very interesting and hoping it deters the evil vole population in my Dahlia raised box.

  2. I have heard that the way to use it as a deterrent is to smash the seeds and put them down the burrows. Highly poisonous, but they don’t eat it and die, they just give it a wide berth, We haven’t tried this yet on the gopher scourge, but wouldn’t that be the cat’s meow?
