How Does The Full Moon Impact Your Seedlings?
The moon is robust and shining down brightly onto the earth. Energies at this time are being drawn downwards into the earth.
At a full moon if you live by the ocean you may notice how the waves change and the tides to be at their height. The reason for this is because the gravitational pull of the moon on the earth is high. Our earth, like our ocean is impacted by the earths gravitational pull. Not only does this impact our oceans, and some people like my dad, but it actually impacts all of nature.
For the earth, more moisture during a full moon is present and the earth and plants know this. Remember, plants are intelligent. Plants ebb and flow with the natural rhythms of life. They know when moonlight will begin to increase or decrease. When the moon is at its fullest, plants focus on putting their energy at this time into their roots.
What To Plant On A Full Moon
Planting during a full moon, and even a few days prior to the new moon are recorded by great gardeners of the past and present to benefit to a particular grouping of seeds. Plants that most benefit from full moon planting are root crops such as radishes, beets, carrots, bulbs and bare root plants. Decorative and fruiting perennials can also see a benefit to planting at this time.
Fortunately ancient planting knowledge is resurfacing back up for more people and we have a selection of beautiful moon calendars available to help you figure out which phase of the moon we are in. Using this as your guide to help you plant can help you nurture one of your best years in your garden yet.
