This version covers April 15th – October 15th. The benefit of lunar gardening and working with the forces nature will help gardeners grow more successfully, whether they are at a beginning or advanced level. Plants respond to the same gravitational pull of tides that affect the oceans, which alternately stimulates root and leaf growth. Seeds sprout more quickly, plants grow vigorously and at an optimum rate, harvests are larger and they don't go to seed as fast. This method has been practiced by many for hundreds of years, and is a perfect compliment to organic gardening because it is more effective in non-chemically treated soil.
