Growing with the Moon 11 - 18 April


Planting and pricking out is best done when the moon is descending which is from 11 – 21 but avoiding the perigee on 17. Plant and prick out cauliflowers and other plants you will eat the flowers of on 11; plants you will eat the leaves of on 12 – 13 (before noon) and plants you will eat the fruits/seeds of on 13 (afternoon) – 15.

So you can keep busy on Wednesday planting/pricking out leaf plants in the morning and fruit plants in the afternoon.
