Part of the idea is that tidal and gravitational forces from the moon
influence turgor pressure and fluid movement in plant tissues. Many herbalists
I know harvest their herbs this way --when the essential oils and fluids of
the plants are most concentrated in the useful part (root for echinacea, leaf
for feverfew, etc.)
The Stella Natura calendar is a complete guide on what to plant when. If you
are more interested in the nitty gritty of it all, try

Biodynamic farming is far more complex than planting by moon phases, and not a
method for everyone. But I can say that every biodynamic farm I've been on
just buzzes with energy and health in a way I've never seen and felt on even
the best managed organic farm.
Hi. A guy in my area who does a lot of gardening told me a few years ago
that he always plants by moon signs because the plants grow much better.
I also heard before that weeds and other unwanted plants are less likely
to grow back if weeding is done under other moon signs. I'd like to know
of anyone's personal experience or of studies and the results. Is there
info on this in the list archives?
