Ideal Seed Sowing Times

Sowing seeds at certain times of the month can add an extra boost to your seeds. The cosmos does play a part in the energy we impart on the seed the moment it touches the soil and water is added. We have, over the years, followed seed sowing with the full moon and with the new moon. There is certainly a lot of oompah at these times! Sometimes too much so, especially at the full moon. A few years back, a biodynamic grower friend of ours, Andrew Seager, told me he always sowed seeds on the days of Moon Opposition Saturn. This is thought of, biodynamically, as the best all round seed sowing day. This moment in the cosmos represents strong form and structure. These are ideal characteristics to imprint into your seeds and plants. Please do not sow at the exact moment of Moon Opp Saturn or the Full or New moon. These moments are too potent. It is best to think of these energies as a wave. You can catch the energy leading up to or heading away from 12 hours either side with great results. Have a try and let us know what you think!
