Moon cycles have been used to give most favourable germination and
subsequent growth. However it must be realised that this is more like a
tweaking of the times, as the effect due to seasons, daily rain and light
have considerably more effect than does the moon. Of course, if
everything else is right, why not plant at the most favourable time? In
Australia a big wall chart moon planting calender is available at book
stores. this tells you when the best times of the month are for various
different types of plants, plus it gives some theoretical information.
