The Moon influences the behavior of plants. Sowing, planting, tending, harvesting... What to do in the garden during the flower days of the lunar calendar? We give you all our tips!
The Moon revolves around the Earth. It takes just over 29 days to return to its original position relative to Earth: this is the lunaison . It passes, throughout its rotation, in front of the 12 constellations of the Zodiac, each one being associated, in astrology, with one of the four elements which are Earth, Water, Fire and Air. The ' days- flowers ' correspond to periods during which the Moon, during its rotation, passes in front of the constellations which are in agreement with the element Air . These are the constellations of Libra, Gemini and Aquarius.
When the Moon passes in front of one of the three constellations of Air (Libra, Gemini, Aquarius), it is a flower day, i.e. a day when priority is given to the flower part of the plant . The plants concerned are numerous. Obviously, we find all the perennial flowers and flowering shrubs (Perovskia, Forsythia , hydrangea, Gaura, lilac, magnolia, narcisse, pivoine, Geranium, rose...).
Also affected are annual or biennial flowers grown in beds or planters you tell them myosotis, you sauges them, they cosmos , begonias, daisies… edible flowers (acacia, blueberry, zucchini, violet, etc.) must also be maintained with care on flower days.
At vegetable garden , we must take care of flower vegetables : artichokes, broccoli and cauliflower. Finally, particular attention should be paid to the herbal teas (chamomile, Tilia , meadowsweet…) and aromatic plants from which we harvest the flowers such as thyme or lavender .
The flower days are ideal for sow or plant flowers and flower vegetables . Indeed, plants sown at this time branch out better and grow faster. You can also take advantage of flower days for sowing and transplanting, repot , cutting and harvesting flowers and flowering vegetables. The bouquets will last longer in vases and the vegetables will be more beautiful, tastier and richer in vitamins.Source journaldesfemmes.fr
