Best Planting Moon in 2024: New Moon
In its first phase the Moon timidly begins to exert its influence on the Earth. The plant sap begins to manifest itself in greater quantity in the stems, migrating toward the branches.
In view of this behavior of the plants, the cultivation of vegetables such as cabbage, lettuce, spinach, and chives are highly recommended. If you are in the habit of using medicinal plants, also take advantage of the New Moon to grow them.
The time is unfavorable only for planting leafy vegetables that grow in a cluster of leaves (also called “head”). This is the case, for example, with lettuce, cabbage, chicory, Chinese cabbage, and others. Plants that grow underground and overhead have slow development in the period.
Rest adaptation phase, it is recommended to use the New Moon for control tasks, eliminating plants that you do not want in your garden. Take the opportunity to adapt newly sown or transplanted plants, harvest flat-rooted plants (except garlic and onions), and make jams, vinegar, and preserves.
If your planting is aimed at producing wood, growing trees for this purpose also shows good results.
In 2024 you will have the arrival of the New Moon on the following days: January 11th / February 9th / March 10th / April 8th / May 8th / June 6th / July 5th / August 4th / September 2nd / October 2nd / November 1st / November 30th / December 30th.
Best Planting Moon in 2024: Waxing Moon
During the Waxing Moon, the planting and development of cereals and legumes is greatly favored. This is due to the presence of more sap in the stem, branches, and leaves of the plants. The period is also recommended for grafting and pruning, with the intention that the plant sprouts faster.
You can bet on the cultivation of foods such as pumpkin, eggplant, corn, rice, beans (pods), cucumbers, peppers, tomatoes, and others, whether they are vegetables, fruits, or cereals. Tomatoes, when planted during this lunar phase, produce in larger quantities and the bunches are closer together. It is also a good time to harvest fruit, onions and garlic.
It is a very favorable phase for growing in sandy soil, as well as cleaning, fertilizing, and invigorating the plant, preventing the appearance of fungus and diseases. It is not advisable to water flower plants during the Waxing Moon.
In 2024 you will have the Waxing Moon on the following days: January 17th / February 16th / March 16th / April 15th / May 15th / June 13th / July 13th / August 12th / September 10th / October 10th / November 8th / December 8th.
Best Planting Moon in 2024: Full Moon
As you might expect, the Full Moon is the phase when the earth reaches its maximum point. However, to enjoy all its benefits, it is important to take care of planting and harvesting during the first days of the lunation. From the middle to the end of the period, the earth may already be feeling the influence of the Waning Moon.
Here we have the best Moon for planting flowers and vegetables, especially cabbage, cauliflower, chicory, lettuce, and the like. The Full Moon is also the best time to harvest fruit. During this phase they are juicier due to the greater amount of sap present in them – concentrated in the branches and leaves of the plants.
If you want to plant tomatoes during the Full Moon, be careful. The plant may grow longer, but it will have less fruit per bunch and will be more likely to suffer from pest attacks.
This is a good time to water and fertilize plants, multiply the plantation through seedlings, and transplant what needs to be replanted. Avoid pruning or cutting during the Full Moon.
In 2024 you will have the Full Moon on the following days: January 25th / February 24th / March 25th / April 23rd / May 23rd / June 21st / July 21st / August 19th / September 17th/ October 17th / November 15th / December 15th.
Best Moon for planting in 2024: Waning Moon
During the Waning Moon, as its name suggests, the force that the star exerts on the Earth begins to wane. With this low – almost insignificant – intensity, the earth’s energy is exerted downward, favoring the germination of roots and tubers.
If you are an experienced person in this matter, you must have heard someone say (especially the older ones) that everything that grows from the outside of the earth withers; and that which grows from the outside in, lasts. Well, this is a wise thought, and should be followed when planting during the waning moon.
Some suggestions for growing at this time are especially foods such as carrots, potatoes, cassava, onions, radishes, beets, and others in this same pattern. Following this cultivation is important because during this phase of the Moon, rooting is the first part to be strengthened when germinating.
There is a delay in being born and growing, generating smaller plants, but with much more developed roots. The plant also absorbs less sap in its stem, branches, and leaves. The period is favorable for pruning with the intention of delaying the sprouting (this must be done with caution, as it can weaken the plant).
During the waning moon it is possible to remove, with better quality, bamboos and wood for construction in general. Take advantage of the period also to remove wilted leaves and plant seeds that germinate slowly.
Waning Moon inhibits pests
Many farmers, even aware of a possible drop in production, take advantage of the Waning Moon to plant corn, beans, and even some fruit plants to avoid the appearance of caterpillars and other insects.
It is a good time to harvest pods and roots, because during this period the food has less sap, which makes cooking easier. The harvest of corn, rice, pumpkin and other foods destined for storage are also more advisable here, because they are more resistant to attacks from woodworm, weevils, and others.
In 2024 you will have the Waning Moon on the following days: January 3rd / February 2nd / March 3rd / April 1st / May 1st / May 30th / June 28th / July 27th / August 26th / September 24th / October 24th / November 22nd / December 22nd.
