Lunar Gardener shows you, in an easy to read calendar format, the influences that the Moon has at the time. Each influence may be tapped on to display useful information detailing that influence, making it very easy to determine how your plants may be affected.

The observation of rhythms in nature plays a key role in Moon gardening practice. What is important is not just where the Sun or Moon is at a given moment, but also what the trend of its movement is, and how they relate to each other.

One of the most obvious rhythms of the Moon that can be observed is the Phase of the Moon, which is the relationship between the Sun and Moon. Traditional farming practices all over the world use this to determine what activities to perform.

In the case of the Sun, the most important considerations are how long it stays in the sky overhead. This is reflected in the seasons. The Moon has a similar rhythm which we might call the Moon Season.

These influences, and more, are what this app aims to make available. The in-app purchase allows you view the zodiacal influences on the Moon, as well as being able to plan ahead more months.

Excellent UX

This is the fourth biodynamic app I’ve downloaded, and I’ve finally found one that shows everything I need in a simple, easy-to-read interface. It also includes extensive background information if you are new to biodynamic or lunar garden. Highly recommend!

I feel like I just bought the free version for $3. This app is terrible. It doesn’t tell you much of anything. I’m also not convinced that it is accurate, in comparison to other calendars I have.

Developer Response ,

Lunar Gardener uses ephemeris data calculated from the JPL astronomical database, so I am confident of the accuracy. Other apps may be using the Moshier approximation. The app description indicates all the lunar data that is displayed, including phase, distance, season, nodes, and the zodiacal information as used in some BD systems of gardening. All of this is conveniently displayed on a monthly calendar, and all data is directly linked to useful help text in case you are unsure of what the influence means. I’m sorry you consider $2.99 to be unreasonable. Please approach Apple for a refund if the app does not meet the description.
