The home guard: Police suggest 30 thorny bushes homeowners could plant to discourage ‘lazy’ garden thieves

It seems when the thin blue line just isn’t enough in the fight against crime, a prickly green one might be just the thing.

Police have begun issuing gardening tips to householders designed to help cut back burglary rates.

The Metropolitan Police guidelines on ‘How to stop garden thieves’ says that people can ‘make their home more secure’ by planting giant rhubarb – which has ‘abrasive foliage’ – and ‘spiny’ gooseberry bushes.

The list of officially approved defensive plants also includes the fearsome sounding Firethorn.
