Q. capparis

This is probably one of the weirder questions you will get. It’s for a novel I am writing. I want the seeds of the Capparis tomentosa (in this particular case, not spinosa, but they’re probably the same) to have been planted, grown to a stage of maturity where it will produce flowers and wind will carry its pollen to a wild turnip and create a hybrid. I need to know how long that would take in years.

The best I can do for you is inform you that that Turnips will cross pollinate with Wild Turnips.

Q. caper plants

I have just bought 2 small (15cm) caper plants and plan to grow them in pots. Can you tell me what size pots I will need? Thanks.

You will need to gradually move up the pot size. I would start with moving them into a 12 inch pot with draining hole. Use a good commercial potting soil.

Eventually a Caper plant can reach 3 to 5 feet high.

Q. Caper bush

I live in Spain and had a caper bush growing out of my terrace tiles. It produced lots of capers the first year that we moved into the house. The second year, we had builders in, who thought they were doing me a favour by cutting it right down to the ground, twice, as it was starting to sprout. That was my n early May. This year the roots are still visible in the tile cracks, but no sprouting as yet, and it’s June. Could the builders have destroyed the plant for good, or is there still a chance it is still alive and sprout later?
