The New Moon phase for May 2009 runs from 24 May – 31 May.

The New Moon is the time for planting above-ground annual leaf and seed crops, as well as flowering annuals and melons in the traditional [lunar planting calendar]( It is also a good time to plant green manure crops and apply liquid fertilisers.

For information on what to do in the various climate zones around Australia in the New Moon phase, check out Aussie Organic Gardening’s [What To Plant In May]( page.
