Here are 50+ fresh castor bean seeds, shelled by hand & ready to plant. These plants are easy to grow, hardy & drought resistant, growing very quickly to 15 feet tall by the end of summer in good soil & full sun (in partial sun they will thrive but stay short). Can be grown in zones 2-11.
Yes, according to research by the University of Illinois, castor bean seeds and the plants themselves have been proven to kill or repel moles, deer & even mosquitoes! I plant castor beans around the perimeter of my garden: no more mole runs, nibbled corn, tomato worms or other garden pests! It's amusing to see the worms & pests dead on a castor bean leaf! Castor beans lend a tropical decor for my patio, their leaves contain alkaloids which repel mosquitoes and other garden pests. These beautiful, exotic tropical plants are just sooo useful & easy to grow! The huge star shaped leaves are glossy with 5-12 deep lobes & sawtoothed margins with bamboo type stems.
