Certain phases increase the resistance, change the direction of movement of the juice through that power goes to a specific part (stem, leaves, fruits, roots, etc.). Therefore, understanding the phases and cycles can significantly simplify your work and increase efficiency. But there is no need to become an astrologer, because there is already lunar calendar for gardeners of every day with tips to care, it is ltse to comply.

The crucial moment is planting vegetables. Enough wrong to choose the place, time and atmosphere and can kill a plant, but in some cases it may even have a negative impact on the soil. It is therefore important to know the auspicious days and also to learn to manage processes in accordance with the activity of the earth’s satellite. So, planting vegetables according to the lunar calendar.

The influence of lunar phases on vegetables

It is known that the Moon passes through four phases: growth, full and waning. Each of them carries its own meaning, since it directly affects the processes of our planet, which in turn affect all living things. Lunar month from the time that differs from the standard and lasts on average 29.53 days. But, because the Moon makes one revolution around the Earth in 24 hours 50 minutes, the lunar calendar is slightly longer than usual.

To maximize the effectiveness of any process, it is necessary to understand the impact of phases on plants:

  • new (3 days) – life juices concentrated in the roots. Now you can’t touch the ground, and in any case not to touch the roots. They are very vulnerable and even a small damage can completely destroy plants. Need as much water.
  • the waxing moon (11-12 days) – the active exchange of substances in the upper parts of the plant (the one that is located above the ground). At this time of great grow stems, leaves, branches, flowers and fruits. Therefore, in such moments it is possible without fear to do the soil (tillage, handling, hilling, etc.). All this is relatively safe because the risk of damaging the root is very small. Now we can do multiplication of vegetables. But not to cultivate or cut, otherwise you can destroy the vegetable entirely.
  • full (3 day) – activity gradually shifts to the roots. This is an unfavorable time for direct contact with plants, namely pruning and grafting. But you can deal with pest control, weed removal, weeding, loosening the soil, applying mulch, and the collection of seeds from root crops.
  • spadenie (11-12 days) is the intensity of the exchange finally goes under ground to the root. In this period allowed to affect the soil, and especially to transplant the plant. But you can spend time weeding garden beds, pruning grafting and cutting flowers. This is the best time to plant vegetables whose fruits ripen under the ground (onions, radishes, garlic, potatoes, beets and the like). A great opportunity to prune the plants if you plan to slow the growth of the shoots.

If you are preparing for planting in the winter, in January and February you can plant vegetable seeds in the greenhouse. On the window sill should be placed greenery. The first half of March will be dedicated to pruning and spraying of trees and shrubs. But near the middle it is possible to plant vegetable seedlings. In the warm April is to plant the tubers (except potatoes) and don’t forget to deal with bugs and to be vaccinated trees. In may planted that are not done in the previous month.

Of course, we cannot blindly follow the lunar calendar. In the end, it is necessary to focus on the climate, area, soil quality and weather, but it changes frequently. However, modern calendars are not only astrologers, but also agronomists who notice all of these points and adjust for the most effective results. This is a handy tool, which is a detailed instruction, broken down into days. That is, you only need to look at the date and read the Board and you will know that today’s tillage will increase soil quality etc. moreover, the lunar calendar will help you to choose the right time for planting, because if you miss a phase, the vegetables will demand extra care. And instead of pleasure from the process, you will have to do additional work to correct the error.
