Moon Gardening for April 2008

The New Moon at 1:55pm (Australian Eastern Standard Time) on Sunday 6 April sees the start of the lunar planting cycle for this month.

Leafy annuals (eg, broccoli, spinach, cabbages) can be sown and seedlings can be transplanted from 11:21am Monday 7 April to 11:27am Wednesday 9 April and from 12:45pm Friday 11 April to 4:33pm Saturday 12 April.

The First Quarter will occur at 4:33am Sunday 13 April.

Fruiting annuals (eg, beans, peas, corn) can be sown and seedlings can be transplanted between 8:10am Friday 18 April and 8:25am Sun 20 April.

The Full Moon will occur at 8:25pm on Sunday 20 April, so remember to put your crystals out overnight to recharge.

Root crops (eg, carrots, beets, potatoes, turnips) can be sown between 8:25am Monday 21 April and 7:08am Wednesday 23 April and from 7:48pm Friday 25 April to 7:27am Monday 28 April.

The Last Quarter wil be at 0:15am Tuesday 29 April and the New Moon will occur at 10:19pm Monday 5 May. Between these times, weed your garden and make compost.

Happy gardening!
