I am an avid gardener and use this website often (thanks for the cool site) and I use the "Planting by the moon" dates given for vegetables. My question is this, Do you have "moon-dates" for flowers and shrubs etc. also? I have some elephant ear bulbs and some caladium bulbs I am wanting to plant, but I am not sure what sign to plant them in. Can you help me? Thanks so much.

There are not Moon dates for shrubs and flowers. If you assume flowers are "above-ground," then it would better to plant during the light of the Moon--from the new Moon to full Moon.
