Are these 'anti-mole' plants safe?

I have moles in my veg patch and a frien has given me several 'bulbs' for anti-mole plants. they are from China and are from the family Bignoniacae-Incarvillea. The attached paper says they should be planted 14metres apart and have flowers 24 - 60 cm. A single plant can cover 20 metres. Shouls I use then or not?



Well - why not? Give it a go and tell us if it works!

Good luck!

Even if it doesn't work. Incarvillea is a beautiful flowering plant. But place sharp sand round it in Autumn to mark where it is and deter the Slugs and Snails who love it.
