Favorable days for planting seeds and seedlings according to the lunar calendar

The content of the article



Experienced gardeners and gardeners advise novice owners of plots to see the lunar planting calendar before planting plants. It has long been known that the phases of the Earth’s satellite directly affect the growth and development of garden crops. For example, during the period of the growth of the moon, it is advised to plant certain types of crops, in the period of decline – others. If you do everything right, you can increase the yield by 30%.

Lunar sowing calendar

The plant’s biodynamic rhythm largely depends on the position of the moon in the sky. Remember the moments when you happened to get up “on the wrong foot”: on such days everything falls apart, the mood deteriorates because of any trifle. So it is with the plant. If you “wake” (sow) a seed at the wrong time for this, the plant will grow sluggish, develop and bear fruit very weakly.

In order for the growth rhythm of a particular culture to coincide with the rhythm of the moon, you need to track favorable days for planting according to a special gardener’s calendar. To do this, you do not need to take an astrologer’s course, you only need to understand the phases of the moon. There are only four of them:

  • New moon. It is often believed that the new moon is the best time to start, but this does not apply to sowing. These days, it’s better to do landscaping, but not to plant seedlings or seeds.
  • Waxing Crescent. The energy of the Earth’s satellite is pulling plants up these days. This is a favorable period for crops whose fruits are located above the ground. As for fertilizers, these are ideal days for mineral fertilizing with chemical additives.
  • Full moon. Just like in the new moon, in this phase it is better to take a break in planting and do other things.
  • Waning moon. The optimal time for growing root crops and bulbs. This includes potatoes, carrots, onions, garlic, radishes, bulb flowers and more. During the waning period, planting of seedlings of fruit trees and shrubs occurs. In order for the future tree to be strong and healthy, you need to take care of the good condition of its roots. This is the best time to add organic fertilizer.

According to the signs of the zodiac:

  • Cancer, Scorpio, Taurus, Pisces. These are signs that the gardener’s business lends itself well to. If you or your loved ones were born under one of these constellations, do not be afraid to plant crops, you will succeed.
  • Virgo, Capricorn, Libra, Sagittarius. These are signs related to the neutral group. Stick to the lunar sowing calendar, then the crop will not keep you waiting.
  • Aquarius, Leo, Aries and Gemini. Your lot is weed weeding and other chores.

Lunar calendar for the gardener

If you consider yourself a gardener, then experts advise you to pay attention to the waning phase of the moon. On favorable days for planting, seedlings take root well, fruit trees and shrubs are trimmed successfully (in phases 3 and 4), when all the juices rush down from the top to the roots. But it is better to plant trees on the growing moon, if suitable weather is observed these days.

Lunar calendar for the gardener

If you decide to start a planting of vegetables, then everything is simple:

  • herbaceous plants whose fruits are underground will delight you with a good harvest if their seeds were planted on a bed during the waning moon;
  • those who plant crops with fruits that are located above the ground, need to do gardening during the growth of the moon;
  • full moon and new moon are inappropriate phases.

Lunar Landing

What to do if you don’t have a lunar calendar at hand, and determining the sowing time is vital in the coming days? The phase of the Earth’s satellite can be easily determined independently, unless there is heavy cloud cover in the sky. To do this, mentally attach a vertical stick to the “horns” of the month. If you succeed:

  • the letter “P” (“horns” are on the right) – means the moon is in a growth phase;
  • the letter “U” (or inverted “P”), then this indicates a decreasing phase.

Trees and bushes

Planting of seedlings of bushes and trees begins in May. In 2019 this month, from 1 to 14.05, the Moon is in the descending zone, the new moon will be May 15, and the growth from 16 to 27. On the 28th, the full moon, and from 29 will begin to decrease. Favorable days for landing are:

Vegetables can be planted at the beginning of spring in the ground under a greenhouse or at home on the balcony in wood or other suitable soil. In late spring and summer, depending on climatic conditions (for example, in Moscow suburbs in May there are often frosts, and in the Krasnodar Territory it is warm), seedlings are transplanted to vegetable beds with further weeding and hilling.
