Gardening according to the phases of the moon, has anyone any experience?

I saw something about it on tv the other day and have read a little about it before.

Does anyone have any experience, does it make a difference or is it coincidence?

From my own experience, I find most things are reluctant to grow after June, when the days start getting shorter. I’ve never tried gardening by moon phases, I tend to go by the phases of the sun rather than the moon, but thought of trying it out this year just for fun.

    I tried it a few years back – but you really do have to be quite methodical about it!
    My main problem with it was that it wanted me to sow/grow/harvest etc. at times I wasn’t ready to!
    The idea is that you should expect bigger & better, pest free crops if whatever you grow.
    My mum also did it a few years back, she is retired and was able to fit her schedule around the suggested times etc. more easily than I could and she reckoned she did see a difference – not sure if that was just wishful thinking though!

    Apparently the new moon is a time of growth. I even cut my hair then and it seems to have worked. My seedlings do well when I start them on a new moon and plant them outdoors at that time too.

    The Old Farmers Almanac is famous for their moon phase planting guides. Don’t know what all is offered on their site, but maybe if you register, you can access some info.
