The table below shows the Moon Phases and Garden activity for the month.

In order to determine the most appropriate timing of your gardening tasks, the lunar phase and zodiac sign must be used. Each sign has a tendency to be better or worse for sowing new plants or crops, and are considered to be barren, semi-barren, semi-fertile or fertile;

The lunar phases mainly govern what types of planting to do and what type of activity is best.  The gravitational pull influences the moisture in the soil.  It is also considered unwise to plant or move any plants on the day when the Moon changes phase, so leave 12 hours on either side of each phase.  Choose Barren signs in the Waning phase to harvest your crop for storage.  Pick fruits and vegetables for immediate consumption during the Waxing phase.

LUNAR PHASE
TASKS
New Moon to
2nd Quarter


Waxing Moon Phase  Strongest gravitational pull at this time coupled with increasing moonlight creates balanced root and leaf growth.  Sow lawns & above ground plants and seeds. Plant annual crops such as lettuce, spinach, celery, broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower & grain crops.  Cucumbers like this phase as well.  Fertilise, graft fruit trees. Mow lawns & prune foliage to increase growth.

2nd Quarter to
Full Moon

Waxing Moon Phase  Gravitational pull is a little less now, but the increase in moonlight supports good leaf growth. Sow above ground plants such as flowers, lawns & annual crops on vines or with seeds that form inside such as; beans, peas, capsicum, squash, tomatoes.  Mow lawns & prune foliage to increase growth.

Full Moon to
3rd Quarter

Waning Moon Phase  Gravitational pull is high but moonlight is decreasing & therefore bulb and root crops thrive.  Plant trees, shrubs, biennials & perennials.  Sow below ground plants such as root vegetables, potatoes, carrots & onions. Good time for transplanting.   Mow lawns & prune foliage to retard growth.

3rd Quarter to
New Moon

Waning Moon Phase  Gravitational pull & moonlight has decreased at this point. Weed, eradicate pests, clear ground, turn soil & remove rubbish.   Mow lawns & prune foliage to retard growth.
