Lunar Planting Guide enables you to conveniently plan your gardening based on the moon phase calendar for the current or selected month.
Pick a month or quickly jump to today and instantly see the most appropriate plants to sow or transplant based on the moon phase calendar for the date you select. Easily view the entire month and tap any day in the calendar to save a note and set a reminder.
As of version 4.0 we have introduced specific plant suggestions based on your location! Select Northern or Southern Hemisphere or your specific region and climate zone, such as 'USA/Canada Zone 2', and get specific plant suggestions for that month based on the time of year. You can then use the moon planting colour guide to determine the best days of the selected month to sow your seeds.
Saving notes for any day makes it very easy to plan ahead based on the moon cycles. The note taking feature can also be used to store a history of your planting and other relevant activities.
Notes can be sent to your device's Calendar and Reminders apps for even more planning flexibility. Send notes by sms or email. Share notes on social media networks.
The simple uncluttered interface enables you to quickly get to the day you want and save notes as you think of them, even while busy in the garden.
This app is suitable for both the Northern and Southern hemispheres.
Some general advice is also given for flower planting and other garden activities.
Please note that the app is designed as a quick reference for home gardeners seeking advice on planting times based on the more scientific aspects of moon gardening. There is a more complicated aspect to lunar planting based on astrology which ties in with the 4 main moon phases and breaks them down further into subsections based on the signs of the zodiac and their association with the elements (earth, air, fire and water). This additional information is not included in the app.
What's New in Version 4.8
- Updated calendar dates
Doesn't Meet Need
Doesn't do much. Severely rudamentary guide for planting/not planting based on current moon quarterly sign. Tools allow you to be very specific about your location and growing zone but doesn't really do anything with this information. I want an Almanac app that gives daily zodiac dominance combined with moon sign and the ramifications of the sign for gardening that day. Still looking.........
Terrible navigation. Sparse. Little info. Rip off
