Caper Spurge is also called Mole Plant as it has a deterrent effect on voles. Of course, one plant in the whole garden isn't sufficient for that purpose, but voles seem not to feel comfortable approx. 3-4 metres around the plant. The spurge bears
its name because, when it's injured, it oozes a white plant juice, which is poisonous and can lead to skin irritations. Hence, it also used to be called Witch's Milk.

Furthermore, the plant is said to have magical properties. Like this, with the spurge's help, closed doors and locks could be opened.

Biennial. Cold germination: sow outdoors at the beginning of spring or in autumn. Alternatively you can use artificial stratification, as follows. Mix the seeds with moist sand in a plastic bag. Keep the bag warm and moist (approx. +20°C) for the first 2-4 weeks and then place it in the refrigerator and keep it at a temperature of +5°C for 5-6 weeks. Then remove the plastic bag from the refrigerator and remove the seed and sand mix from the bag. Keep the sand mix at room temperature and check the seeds regularly to see when they germinate. Prick the seedlings into pots and plant them out after the last frosts in mid-May.
