Keith's Moon Planting Page
  A few moon planting facts, rules and examples...

People have been planting by the moon's phases for centuries, in the belief that
something in the lunar light or gravity affects the way plants grow.
The Simplest Rule For Moon Planting...
The moon planting rule says to plant crops that produce above the ground
during the increasing light of the moon (from new moon to full moon) and to plant
crops that produce below the ground during the decreasing light of the moon
(from full moon to new moon).

A More Detailed Set of Moon Planting Rules...
Moon Planting Rule
New Moon To Full Moon:  Sow, Transplant, bud and graft.
Full Moon To New Moon:  Plow, Cultivate, weed and reap.
New Moon To First Quarter:  Good for Planting above-ground crops with outside seeds,
flowering annuals.
First Quarter To Full Moon:  Good for planting above ground crops with inside seeds.
Full Moon To Last Quarter:  Good for planting root crops, bulbs, biennials, and perennials.
Last Quarter To New Moon:  Do Not Plant

Moon Planting Examples...
A list of when and what to plant.
First quarter planting, or the time from the new moon to about half-full.
Plant annuals with above-ground yields, particularly leafy plants which produce
their seed outside the fruit.
1st Qtr. Examples:
  • asparagus cabbage, celery, endive, and spinach.
  • Second quarter planting, or the time from the half-full to the full moon.

    Gardening By Moon Sign
    Placement of the moon in the heavens through astrology is not the same as it's physical placement through astronomy. In earlier times, farmers used a solar, lunar and astrological calendar to ensure the proper planting period for their gardens and fields. Here in the U.S. Benjamin Franklin published the first horoscopes in his Philadelphia daily, which included a monthly entry concerning gardening.
    The water signs are the best for planting. When the moon is in Cancer, Scorpio, or Pisces are the best times. But Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn can be follow-up alternatives.
    Weeding and Plowing
    When the moon moves into Aries, Gemini, Leo Sagittarius and Aquarius, remove weeds and inspect your plants for pests.
    Transplanting and Grafting
    Transplanting and Grafting are best done when the moon enters Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces.
    Pruning is best done during Aries, Leo or Sagittarius. Try to schedule your pruning during a waxing moon to encourage growth.
    Keep it clean and mended
    Clean out your shed during a Virgo moon to help the work move along smoothly. Mend fences, gardening stakes and beds during a Capricorn moon.
    Avoid making decisions when the moon is in Libra.
