Hopefully, members that already plant for moths can give us some good advice and suggestions.

Good idea for a thread.
I knew the link was from the UK, but their suggestions are universal.

*plant nighttime flowering plants
*create hedges
*provide hiding places
*don't use a lot of lighting
*leave the weeds

Universal, don't you think?
