Talkback: Gardening by the moon

Posted: 13/09/2012 at 21:32

But you don't know if it makes no difference unless you keep an "anti-moon gardening diary".  I'd like to garden by the moon but like you say it's a question of having time when the weather is right.  In France they give away free gardening by the moon calendars in the local gardening shops, so if a whole nation follows it, there must be something in it - mustn't there?  Don't answer!  Anyway for all we know if we did do everything right and followed the moon maybe the leeks would be 2 inches diameter, really tasty and tender and th tomatoes wouldn't succomb to blight - who knows unless soemone volunteers to split their garden in two - full moon and new moon.

I have had lily beetle on my onions and shallots for the last to years.  They don't seem to do much damage to the bulbs just burrowing into the stems.  I'm pretty sure it is the lily beetle because they young have the same habit of covering themselves in their own excrement.  Has anyone else noticed this?
