Thanks cristina, it's so helpful to have it all laid out.
Do these dates apply no matter where in the world we are?

I wondered that, too. I downloaded a moon calendar from tomodori for France and it looks a little different from the others I've seen - which also look different from each other! Cristina's is not quite the same as the moon calendar I bought on the web. Maybe the basics are there and I'm just getting confused by the details or the way different people indicate the best times.

Check out the one on tomodori.com and see if they're the same. It's on the jardin lunaire (or something similar) thread. Actually, I just compared them and they're very close, but the tomodori calendar doesn't state the hours when the plant cycle passes from flowers to roots to fruits or whatever.
