What is gardening by the Moon?

Moon gardening is certainly nothing new. It has been passed down through many generations. There are firm believers in moon gardening today who will not plant anything unless a favorable moon sign is indicated.

Just as the moon's gravitational pull influences the ocean's tide, it is theorized that it also influences the movement of fluids contained in plants. Moon gardening is based on this belief. It has not been scientifically proven or disproved but subscribers report continued success from this method.
