        The idea that the Skrulls took both the Kree and the Cotati to Earth's Moon seems to have originated with the EARTH X miniseries and spread to various wikis. In the original Avengers story, each group was taken to their own moon and left there for one year.

      Yes and no. The Skrulls specifically chose Earth's Moon for the Kree (it says this explicitly). But the Cotati had another moon ("each race to a different uninhabited planetoid") in an undisclosed location was not their own moon. It was not their own moon.
      But correct, the Cotati were never on Earth's Moon. I think I would rather assume that either the Skrulls "terra"-forming and/or the Kree's cultivation resulted in something for the Gardener to grow on the Moon.

    If the Kree and the Cotati were on seperate moons then how did the Kree slaughter the Cotati BEFORE they killed the Skrulls and took their ship?

    As I remember it the Skrulls were outraged by the Kree killing the Cotati and only when they rebuked the Kree did the Kree chose to slay the Skrulls and take their ship.

The story in Avengers #133 specifically shows the Skrulls transporting the Kree contestants back to their homeworld once their year-long contest was over. It was only after Morag was back on Hala that he learned of the possibility that the Skrulls might be about to judge in favor of the Cotati and so that night he led his warriors against the Cotati and slaughtered them while the Skrulls slept in their ship. The following morning he announced to the Skrulls that the Kree had settled the question of who would represent Hala by destroying their opposition. The Skrull emperor, Dorrek, was appalled and declared that Skrulls did not condone barbarism and that Hala would be shut forever from their circle of favored worlds. Morag had been expecting such a response because he then immediately ordered his followers to kill all the Skrulls, which they did.

In short, the Kree's genocide against the Cotati and their murder of the Skrulls and theft of their starship all took place on Hala, not on Earth's Moon.

There was never any mention of what happened to the moon which the Cotati had transformed into a garden. Presumably the Cotati who had been taken there had, like the Kree contestants, been returned to Hala so that they would be present when the Skrulls announced their decision, but that's never actually been stated in any story which I've read.
