Each month is given it's own page and you can see that it is packed with loads of information.
But for me, as the propagator, I am most interested in the day by day planting guide. Today being the 22nd August you can see that there is a carrot and flower pictured with the time 09.16 which means that at 16 past nine this morning it changed from a root day to a flower day.
This influences so many tasks such as propagating, cultivating, weeding, feeding etc. And it is all influenced by which zodiac the moon is in. The zodiacs are divided into the 4 elements
Fire signs are Aries, Leo, and Sagittarius and when the moon is in these signs working with fruiting plants is in order.
Earth signs are Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn and when the moon is in these signs root vegetables are most advantageously worked.
Air signs are Gemini, Libra and Aquarius and when the moon is in these signs we concentrate on flowering plants.
Water signs are Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces and when the moon is in these signs we devote our time to leafy plants.
And at the moment here in the southern hemisphere the moon is in Libra, an air sign, a flower day. So I thought that as Spring is in the air ( we are in short sleeves after all) and I'm the propagator, that some beautiful spring flowers were the order of the day.
Not only do they attract beneficial insects to the garden and feed the bees but they do brighten up the day.
Thanks for visiting
