Take time out from sowing seeds until after the dark of the moon on Sunday 23rd July 2017. As the moon nears its smallest visible ‘dark of the moon’ phase, this time is associated with spindly, weak growth – wait a week or so.
Do other things instead.
If your weather is cold, maybe its a time to:
- Build a new compost bin
- renovate garden beds
- read up on this next season and seed types to plant for success – they all have their favorite times. New seed catalogs are out and a real treat to enjoy in winter.
- learn more about the optimum conditions to grow GREAT crops of your favorite veg or fruit
- Plan your next seed sowing, your garden layout, or crop rotation to minimize pest and diseases.
