Super Moon planting

Climate Change, Grow your own

Tonight the moon will be the closest it has been to the earth for almost 20 years. I had a great view of it last night walking through St James Park in London  as it hovered over the Blue lights of the Wheel and the  face of Big Ben casting its energy over the nodding heads of daffodils. Apologies for the poor quality photo but it proved slightly challenging without a tripod plus the air was very misty.

This Super Moon is a spectacular event and the biggest in 20 years. It is 14% larger than usual and 30% brighter than lesser Moons. It is also happening almost on the Spring Equinox plus it is inVirgo which is the sign of plants – good news for gardeners!

Many people plant by the phases of the moon to yield better results  and the Super Moon is a great day for planting fruit crops:

I am not an experienced gardener - more of an enthusiastic amateur who learns by trial and error and is keen to "manage" the effects of the weather on my garden. Writing this blog is my passion and I hope that it will continue to grow, allowing global gardeners to communicate about the effects of climate change on our plants and the future of our gardens.
