I've had great luck using Euphorbia lathyris to get rid of gophers. Several other Euphorbias look similar, I wonder if any have the same effect? I'd love to try some of these other beauties too!

sandy, that's exactly why I tried planting Euphorbia lathyris this year - someone had referred to as the 'Gopher plant' and figured it couldn't hurt to include it in the planting with the others - might just ward off the moles as well. Planted three, lost one immediately but the other two are surviving, so far that is! Oddly enough I had deer visiting the gardens this year that munched on the Euphorbias - I felt no sympathy, I hope that milky sap made them sick for weeks! LOL
