New in version 4 - Specific Plant Suggestions
We have been gradually building a database of vegetable planting times for the main areas of the world and the new version 4.0 contains this very important and much requested upgrade. These plant databases will be continuously improved and updated with future releases.
For thousands of years, planting during the four main phases of the lunar month has been considered a popular way to produce healthier crops and maintain beautiful gardens year-round. It is based on the effect of changes in the gravitational forces between the Earth and the Moon as it orbits. It also provides a natural calendar for carrying out various gardening tasks.
Please note that the app is designed as a quick reference for home gardeners seeking advice on planting times based on the more scientific aspects of moon gardening. There is a more complicated aspect to lunar planting based on astrology which ties in with the 4 main moon phases and breaks them down further into subsections based on the signs of the zodiac and their association with the elements (earth, air, fire and water). This additional information is not included in the app.
