Well I don't really think so...it's been trial and error with me, but I don't like to be beaten. My husband had to show me "snipping" though, which I regard as being beaten!!

The real test will be if it works when you try it...I'm depending on you now!

And I'm a regular in your garden, but I don't always mention that I've been somewhere, in case it gets burdensome, and your garden is very popular. Wink

i wasn't sure and certainly wasn't sure that that would've answered your question enough for me to be proud:/

I think you are right, M, we could do with some more evidence, and it would be good to compare how frequently a badger is seen in a garden with lots of lunas, as opposed to one with only one. Yours will be very interesting to observe but, as I said, I was regularly visiting a garden with six, all in fruit, and no badger came at all.

Very Happy I'll need to wait until Laura moves it I think before I can make a comments page, otherwise she'll have to move that too. Thanks SO much for your help!

You're welcome.

Pretty pictures. I wish I'd captured my first (and only) hare now... not in my garden, I'm only doing mice at the moment, but very prolifically! I thought he was very smart.

i think i glossed over that as i didn't want my brain to take it in, we love Luna's anyway and have often planted a garden full, err, ahhhh, that makes us feel a bit better^_^

Absolutely! I have seen evidenceof Lops (not actual ones, not yet anyway) in gardens with only one flowering Thornbloom. So me planting 4 was a little OTT. Having said that it only took 2 hours to attract one with mixed veg. sadly no one saw it. Sad But I live in hope Smile

I spotted a brown bunny in your garden. Added you to favorites and we will try to spot the lop eared critter!

I think having more than 1 thornbloom is helping. I only had one. I did have all three bunnies spotted in my garden eventually but there were lots of mice in between. You seem to have only bunnies. It shouldn't take you long to get the lop eared back.

I'll be interested to see if that bonsai gets you a red squirrel now as well. Those are the fellows I'm after! Wink

Could I, if they eat the same things and aren't deterred by each other's preferred plants, attempt to attract two different animals at the same time, or are the chances of getting something, increased according to the number of its attracting plants you have?

Have I said that in enough different ways now, d'you think... Rolling Eyes

I'm planning ahead now and was thinking I'd have a garden full of lunas for the badgers. Then I wondered if I could intersperse some fruit for the tortoises (I haven't checked the finer details about who likes and dislikes what yet).

From experience, i had at different times my garden set up for only the ostrich, bee eater and kiwi etc and planted 6 of the same plant for what was needed when i was trying to lure in those critters and found i got less critters than people with a maximum of 3 of the necessary plants....so i plant 3 same plants and maybe a maximum of 4.....

I recently harvested my Fontiflorus cactus to make room for something else. It succeeded in attracting a Meerkat at the fully grown stage, but does anyone know if it still attracts once it is flowering?
