Why Gardening by the Moon Phases?
Because the Moon governs our life-giving water element, and hence the growth and decay cycle of all things organic and inorganic. For example, to be able to harvest a good crop in autumn, it is vital to prepare the soil, plant, fertilise and harvest at the most opportune times of the season.
Did you know that:
- During the waxing Moon (from new to full Moon) the Earth is releasing nutrients and plants absorb them?
- During the waning Moon (from full to new Moon), plants release nutrients by dropping leaves, fruit and branches which then break down on into mulch?
- If you want to encourage strong and healthy regrowth, mow your lawn in the waxing Moon phase in a ‘water sign’.
- If you want to retard the growth because you don’t want to mow often, then mow in the waning phase in Aquarius?
