Superb reasoning, backed by incontrovertible evidence. How have I coped without this information?
Interesting way to garden. I am inspired. Please visit me for information on aeroponics which will be of great help.
I think the idea is that if possible, you sow on these dates, then you pick up on the next cycle of that particular type to plant out. You could try sowing half your plants by the moon cycle and half at any other time and see if it makes a difference.
Whoa that's a really great idea and exactly what I was thinking tonight as I walked to the store.. To bad I would have to go to someone else's yard to do it. I don't have a yard in my apartment. But Night time in Nevada is probably the best time to workout in the patch.. Great article.


Housework is making raised beds, turning compost, cleaning pots, putting up wires, making supports. All those things we seem to put off.
Hi to you all,I`m so `Gob-smacked` by all this information, and excited to go in a different direction, a journey of learning and participating in moon gardening. My garden faces south-east and is wonderfully lucubrate for moon gardening.
Very interesting - not sure how I'm going to start but I'll give it some thought. I have a cottage garden, how would planting flowers fit in with moon gardening?
I believe that you have to make a distinction between annuals and perennials (this applies to 'fruit' as well - see above). If your flowers are annuals, the optimum time is in period 1 and 2, (between the new moon and the full moon). Anything that is a perennials should be planted in the third period (after the full moon, before the last quarter).
I buy a' gardening& planting by the Moon' diary each year...tells me when to sow/plant etc....saves having to work it out for myself.!Lots of interesting info as well.
In Cornwall the moon gardening guru is John Harris and features on the Sunday BBC Radio Cornwall garden line. Here is a link to a website about his methods.
we have a brand new allotment at the moment and it is waterloged how can the moon help us


Even moon methods differ. I just like that in each week of the year, I have a shorter list of things to do and seem to get more done.
would like to know where you can get a "gardeners planting by the moon diary" i could really use one of those !!!
Hello, I have got lots of Brussel Sprout Stalks, in my allotment in Manchester, I am just wondering what to do with them ? Does anyone Know? Do they continuosly produce sprouts, year after year, i have heared you cut the leaves off to promote more growth ? Or do they want removing and perhaps composting, also are the salks Edible, cant find any recipes.
Now I know why I don't see many people on the site of my new allotment - they're all gardening by the moon! Interesting idea though, and I remember my grandfather (a professional gardener) talking about this, I'll give it a go.
