'Graft not Trees, the Moon waning, or not to be seen, and if you shear sheep in her increase the wool will grow again the better.'
'Sow or plant when the Moon is in Taurus, Virgo or Scorpio in good Aspect of Saturn, but when she is in Cancer set or sow all kinds of pulses, and in Libra or Capricorn dress your Gardens and trim your small Trees and Shrubs,'
Planting by the Moon is traditional in the East, and there have been somewhat inconclusive studies by Western astrologers.
