Planting by the Moon

Extracted from a Farmers Almanac email is the following:

Plant your annual flowers and vegetables that bear crops above ground during the light, or waxing of the Moon … from the day the Moon is new to the day it is full.

Plant flowering bulbs, biennial and perennial flowers, and vegetables that bear crops below ground during the dark, or waning, of the Moon … from the day after it is full to the day before it is new again.

For more specific dates, there is a Planting Table in this year’s Old Farmer’s Almanac that gives you the best planting days based on the Moon’s phases and your location.
