Lunar gardening calendar: the principle
For more than a century, several generations of gardeners and peasants have observed theinfluence of the moon on the quality of their crops. By comparing observations and experiences, several principles were highlighted, which made it possible to establish correspondences between the phases of the moon, its trajectory in the sky and the development of plants… with the key real benefits of the moon over the plants, fruits and vegetables of the garden!
Lunar calendar in January 2020: which moon phases?
If you follow the precepts of the lunar gardening, the rising and falling phases of the moon are very important: indeed, the rising moon phases are those during which you will be able to sow, grow, graft; while the descending phases will be reserved for pruning, planting, cutting and repotting.
Likewise, during the phases of the crescent moon (period which passes from the new moon to the full moon) the harvests are supposed to be reserved for conservation, while during the waning moon phases (period which passes from the full moon to the next new moon), the harvests are made to be consumed.

Lunar calendar of January 2020: the days when it is better not to garden
Gardening with the moon involves respecting certain principles, such as that of not gardening (or avoiding gardening 5 hours before or after) on days when the moon is at a period:
- Apogee, which corresponds to the moment when, during its rotation around the Earth, the moon deviates from it as much as possible (maximum distance between the Earth and the Moon).
- Perigee, which corresponds to the moment when, during its journey around the Earth, the moon gets as close as possible to the latter (minimum distance between the two stars).
- Lunar node (when, during its rotation around the Earth, the moon "cuts" the plane of rotation of the latter around the Sun).
For the month of January 2020 :
- Lunar perigee: Monday, January 13
- Descending lunar node: Friday January 10
- Lunar climax: Wednesday January 29
- Ascending lunar node: Wednesday January 22
