When should I plant my garden according to the Moon? - 3 Things to consider

With our help, your garden will make all your neighbors jealous. In order to get the outdoors you dream of, you must follow nature's cycle with the help of our Moon calendar.

1. Moon's position: Is it rising or waning?

Choose an observation point and fix your attention on a landmark in order to observe the Moon each evening. You’ll notice quickly how to spot if it's ascending or descending in the sky.

  • Rising Moon: The plants’ sap increases, and this is the ideal period for priming your plants because they’re more resistant. The Rising Moon is the best time to sow seeds, harvest vegetables, or graft any more plants.
  • Waning Moon: Sap decreases during the Waning Moon, and this time is beneficial for everything that lives underneath the ground. The Waning Moon is the right time to fertilize your plants and to plant or prune any trees.

2. Garden with the Moon’s position

There are 4 types of days that work with the Moon’s position. 

Root Days

These days correspond to the moment when the Moon passes through Taurus’, Virgo’s and Capricorn’s constellations (these are all Earth signs). The Moon acts upon the roots of the plants, so this is the perfect time to sow, plant, and harvest any root vegetables, like carrots.

Flower Days

The days correspond to the time when the moon is passing through Gemini’s, Libra’s, and Aquarius’ constellations (the Air signs). This Moon phase influences the vegetables and plants that have flowers, like artichokes, cauliflowers and other floral shrubs. This is the perfect time to plant, sow seeds, and repot.

Fruit and Seed Days

These days are linked to the time when the Moon passes through Aries’, Leo’s, and Sagittarius’ constellations (the Fire signs). This phase encourages the growth of fruit and seeds right now, so this is the right time to plant, sow, graft, and pick!

Leaf Days

Last, but not least, these days are when the Moon is passing through Cancer’s, Scorpio’s, and Pisces’ constellations (Water signs). This phase affects the roots and leaves of the vegetables, so this is the right time to prune, mow, or transplant anything.

3. “Harmful” days for gardening

There are certain days in which the garden should be left untouched however, these days are:

  • New Moons: The Moon’s and the Earth’s orbit are intersecting
  • Lunar Apogee: The Moon is at its farthest point away from the Earth.
  • Lunar Perigee: The Moon is at its closest point to Earth.

What phase of the Moon is best for planting?

The rising Moon occurs between the New Moon and Full Moon phases, and it lasts for about 14.5 days. Generally speaking, the rising or waning moon is a sign of vitality, meaning it makes plants more vigorous, more resistant to pests and diseases. This phase is favorable to pruning, harvesting, planting, and picking of fruits and vegetables intended for conservation. Flowers and plants are also more productive during this cycle because the sap is more intense.
