Planting Guide for Gardeners


A is the interval between the New Moon to First Quarter: It is good for planting above-ground crops with outside seeds and for flowering annuals.
B is between the First Quarter and Full Moon: It is the ideal period for planting above ground crops with inside seeds.
C is the interval between the Full Moon to Last Quarter: This is a very good time for planting root crops, bulbs, biennials and perennials.
D is between the Last Quarter to New Moon: Do not plant.

As a general rule the period from New Moon to Full Moon is a good period to sow seeds, transplant plants, bud and graft. The period from Full Moon to New Moon is the best time to plow, cultivate, weed and reap.
