Lunar sowing calendar for Moscow region for 2019
Even in antiquity, observing celestial bodies, people deduced a certain pattern of planting and planting and the influence of lunar cycles on their development. Today, such dependence is proved by experts and the practice of gardening. The article will help determine the work on the infield in 2019 for the Moscow Region in accordance with the lunar calendar.
Lunar sowing calendar for 2019 for the Moscow region for months
The climate of Moscow Region and Moscow Region is characterized as temperate continental. Winters are fairly mild, and summers are warm and humid. The coldest month is January (-10 ° С ... -15 ° С), and the warmest is July and the beginning of August (+ 18 ° С ... + 25 ° С).
Did you know? The temperature on the invisible night surface of the moon turned out to be unexpectedly low for researchers - -190 ° C. And the sunny side of our satellite is heating up to + 127 ° С.
Any plant has its own development cycle associated with the phases of the moon. So, for example, on the growing moon, the aerial parts of plants are more actively developing, the green mass is growing. With decreasing - the growth of the roots and the underground part of plants increases.
But do not forget that the strength and health of plants depends on proper care and ensuring all growing conditions. In addition, sometimes the weather and weather forecasts make adjustments to the organization of work on the garden plot.
Below are all suitable days for sowing and planting. Of course, no one will sow in the winter months, January or December, in an open area. But if the farm has year-round greenhouses, then such information may come in handy.
The month of January gives a little respite to gardeners and gardeners. But this time should be spent with benefit for further field work. Make up a small phased plan for conducting spring field work - after all, this is the hottest time. Draw a rough plan of the site and outline the places for sowing and planting garden crops. So you can correctly take into account crop rotation and the permissible proximity of plants.
The layout of garden crops looks something like this
Divide the plot conditionally into four parts, taking into account the requirements of garden crops for top dressing:
- organic fertilizers - early and late cabbage, asparagus, cucumbers, pumpkin, tomatoes;
- mineral fertilizers - carrots, beets, celery, parsley, radish;
- crops that do not require fertilizers - onions, garlic, radishes, herbs, leafy vegetables;
- under potatoes and other garden plants at will.
Conduct an audit of planting and sowing material to remove expired seeds and plan the purchase of new varieties. If it is possible to visit the site in January, remove excess snow from the paths and walkways. Sprinkle with snow mass the beds with winter crops in case of exposure.
In January, you can sow seeds for seedlings for greenhouse cultivation:
|cucumbers||1, 19, 20, 28, 29|
|pepper||9–11, 13–15, 19, 20, 24, 28, 29|
|cabbage||1, 5–7, 19–21, 24, 25, 28, 29|
|eggplant||9–15, 20, 25, 28, 29|
Springtime is approaching, the days have become longer, sometimes the sun pleases with its appearance. It's time to do planting in accordance with the lunar calendar. We advise you to keep it in a prominent place to regularly check the dates of sowing.
Check the onion and garlic heads set aside for storage. Those specimens that showed green sprouts, plant tightly in seedlings for early vitamin green.
In early February, sown root and petiole celery, parsnip, root parsley for seedlings. Throughout the month, you should choose days for sowing cucumbers. To get early greens at home, you can sow leaf parsley, basil and plant onion heads on a feather.
In the last days of February, seeds of early ripe varieties of tomatoes, cucumbers, cabbage (white, cauliflower, broccoli), sweet pepper and eggplant are sown on seedlings on a growing moon. It should be borne in mind that usually the age of seedlings for planting in open ground should be 50-60 days.
Take a closer look
There is still not enough sunlight and heat in February, so a place for seedlings is chosen on a well-lit window sill or illuminated with phytolamps.
The cool February weather is suitable for cabbage seedlings and onion seedlings. Onion seedlings grow slowly and, when spring planted in open ground, take root more quickly, which is an advantage over crops immediately into the ground.
On a waning moon, one should dive. On the site, you can continue work on snow retention, check the thickness of the snow cover in winter crops on the beds.
In case of warm weather, remove mulch from the beds so that crops are not ripened.
February sowing days:
|cucumbers||7, 8, 11–13, 16, 17, 24, 25|

The first thawed spots appear, migratory birds arrive. Spring in the suburbs usually comes in late March or early April. The active phase of field work is beginning. It is during this period that the foundation for the future crop is laid. Seedlings planted in February should be transplanted into a greenhouse or hardened on a glass balcony at a temperature of + 7 ° С ... + 10 ° С.
For the Moscow Region in mid-March, it is time to sow mid-season and late tomato varieties for seedlings, and you can continue in early April. In early March, 1, 2, you can sow parsley, celery and leek on seedlings. Put potatoes from storage for heating and germination.

Here there is an active growth of the aerial parts and the green mass of plants. At the beginning of the phase, tall plant species are planted, closer to the full moon, undersized and squat.
Waning moon Helps strengthen the root system and fill juices of root crops and underground parts of plants. During this period, you can do harvesting, harvesting seeds, fertilizing and fertilizing. Not only the phases of the moon affect the development of plants, but also in which constellation of the zodiac sign is currently luminous.

The most unfavorable periods for landing in 2019
Plants as a living organism are sensitive to the lunar ebbs and flows that occur on the growing and waning moon. The energy of plants, having reached a peak with the growing moon, begins to decrease with a diminishing luminary. And in the period of the new moon reaches its minimum. Plants are exhausted and vulnerable to even minor damage.
On such unfavorable days they can not be planted, transplanted and cut. The days when the Moon is in the full moon phase and in the unproductive zodiac signs can have a negative effect on the formation and development of plants. Eclipses of both the Moon and the Sun should also be excluded from the planting calendar.
Important! It is advisable not to deal with plants on the new moon. There is a restructuring of the flow of life-giving juices, and plants are sensitive to transplants. Better tackle weeds and pests.
The full moon is not absolutely forbidden for gardeners. You can collect fruits and seeds, loosen and weed the beds. But it is advisable to exclude vaccination and pruning. The days when you should refrain from sowing and planting are listed below.
The unfavorable phases of the moon and the position of the star in the barren constellations of the zodiac are taken into account:

If, in addition to thorough and timely care of garden plants, you take star luminaries as your assistants, this will facilitate the organization of field work, and the autumn harvest will appreciate the abundance and quality of fruits. But once again it is worth recalling the importance of weather forecasts.
