Pruning by the moon

Postby MarkEvens » Fri Jan 21, 2011 6:29 pm

I pruned all my apple trees this week, which happened to coincide with the full moon. There seem to be different viewpoints as to whether this is a good, bad or indifferent thing. Those into biodynamics say that you get extra sap leakage. However, I would have thought that full-moon pruning in mid-January will result in less sap leakage than doing it 6 weeks later.
