GUEST, Tom Bliss Folklore: Planting by phases of the moon (39) RE: Folklore: Planting by phases of the moon 07 Nov 11

The science behind companion planting, permaculture et al is now well established, and I believe will play an increasing role in how we feed ourselves without massive oil-based inputs in future.

There could, I suppose, potentially be something unexpected in this moon business (an open mind is always advisable), but as yet science has had little to say of merit, and the instinctive reaction will be to call it nonsense.

For that reason only it's real a shame that moon-planting is often bracketed with the likes of permaculture (books dealing with both for example), as the lack of science behind one dilutes the excellent and essential science behind the other.
