Gardening by the Moon

Gardening by the Moon involves uses the Moons phases to find the right time to plant and maintain your garden. It increases the health of plants and the yield of crops. But sometimes it’s difficult to understand the reasons why we are supposed to do certain jobs at certain times. To make it simple, I will share with you my method of understanding Moon gardening that is easy to remember, and easy to use.

 First I will tell you two simple rules – then the two simple exceptions to the rules!

 Rule 1. Make use of the Moon Phase. When the moon is getting bigger, known as waxing, the life force or energy is going into a growing phase. So its time to plant seedlings, apply foliage fertilisers, and any activity where you want growth, foliage and general expansion.

When the moon is getting smaller, known as waning, the life force or energy is going into the roots. Now its time to apply organic manure, plant your roots crops, prune to retard growth, kill weeds and pests, cultivate, and strike plants that need a period of dormancy before they grow. But during the exact New and Full Moons it is best to avoid any activity.

 Rule 2. Find out the Moon Sign. The Moon moves through the zodiac and is in each sign for about 2 or 3 days. Some signs are fertile and some are barren. Planting should be done in fertile signs and maintenance performed in barren signs. If the moon is in Earth signs (Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn), or Water signs (Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces), it is considered to be fertile. If it is in Fire signs (Aries, Leo, Sagittarius) or Air signs (Gemini, Libra, Aquarius) then its barren. But avoid the actual time of the New and Full Moons.

To remember this; just think literally – real earth and water are the ideal place to grow things so they must represent fertile signs. And fire is hot and burns, and air blows the dust around, so they must represent barren signs. But….see exceptions 1 and 2!

 Exception 1. Libra is an air sign and so should be barren, but it is really fertile. Why; because Libra is concerned with balance and harmony, and plants want to grow and bloom and be beautiful, just like the essential qualities of Librans.

Exception 2. Virgo is an earth sign and should be fertile, but is actually barren. Why; because Virgo is symbolically the untouched ideal, and very fussy, so it’s not a good time to plant things. These plants will be selective and hard to please. They find everything just too cold, too hot, too dry, too wet, too….do you get the idea?

 So for planting, select the waxing phase of the Moon and find the times the Moon is in fertile signs. And for garden maintenance or weeding, select the waning phase and the barren signs. But take care to avoid the peak New and Full Moons for any activity.

 Moon gardening can become a great deal more detailed in the times to plant leafy, root or fruiting crops, but to start your life of Gardening by the Moon, begin with this simple technique; and success will be yours.

Looks like you are a real specialist. Did you study about the subject? haha..

Kerry - December 14, 2009

Hello Tyrone, I certainly did study the effects of the Moon in my own garden and it really works. Just try planting a plant at the wrong time and another at the right time. Then see which one is healthier, bigger and which one can handle lack of water and pests without struggling to survive. Happy gardening. Kerry 🙂
