Welcome to February. Did you know that the four best tips to a magnificent garden is using the combinations of
Waxing, Waning, Barren and Fertile Moon times!
There is an article on this website that explains it in detail. And I have added here my Mini Almanac with the planting days using the combination.
As usual here is the link to my newsletter Earth. Moon and Stars with Sun Sign Astrology forecasts, what you can see in the amazing skies this month and much more.
