Gardening with the Moon: Root, Leaf, Flower, Fruit Days – 1

I said in an earlier article – Gardening by the Moon – that the Moon acts as a lens to focus onto the Earth the energy coming from each constellation.

For instance, say the Moon is in front of the constellation of the Ram (Aries). This is a fire constellation and fire (as we’ll see later in the column) has to do with fruits, beans, strawberries, melons, holly berries, apples, all the pretty plants we grow for the berries as well as the berries and fruits we eat. While the Moon is focusing this energy onto the Earth from the Ram constellation is a good time to sow, plant and transplant, cultivate and harvest all fruiting plants. It’s also the time to use the spray preparation 501 (horn silica) to help the fruits come to their optimum but again, we’ll go into that later in the column J.

The following table gives you an idea of what to do when …

Date Day NORTHERN SOUTHERN
Use 500, Horn Manure, on the relevant plants on the relevant days, as necessary Use 501, Horn Silica, on the relevant plants on the relevant days, as necessary
13 Jun FLOWER Sow annual flower seeds; late succession broccoli, cauli, calabrese Weed/hoe cauli, broccoli, calabrese; & flower beds
14 Jun FLOWER to 8am GMT

LEAF from 9am GMT

  1. Elen,

    In your opinion is it just the Earth’s moon that focusses energy as you describe or do the moons of other planets and other solar systems do the same? Do they also take the same days off? Can you give me an estimate of the amount of energy being focussed on average throughout the year from the Ram constellation?

  2. Hi NIck, just got back from a week on Dartmoor. As we’re working with the Earth and the solar system the influences are from our own moon.

    Days off … this is completely related to Earth. The calendar relates to the star systems as seen from Earth. They won’t look the same even from Jupiter let alone another solar system or galaxy :-).

    To go further with “other moons”, the same would apply. Each planet has its own system. How the stars appear to each will be different. If they use moons to reflect energy then that will be particular to the planet and system.

    Does that help? 🙂
