Do you believe in gardening in conjuction with the phases of the moon? I sowed these mixed salad leaf seeds on Saturday 24th March!! That was two days after the New Moon. I wasn't sure how much truth there was in it until I caught sight of all these little new shoots popping up this afternoon. It is said that we should sow seeds and plant things out on a waxing moon, and do any pruning or cutting back on a waning moon. It certainly makes you think, doesn't it?
