Lunar sowing calendar. Influence of the moon phase on plant transplantation

Lunar sowing calendarNot only the emotional mood of a person depends on the influence of the moon, but also the consequences of the events of the day. Even sowing plants lends itself to the influence of the lunar phases , and therefore it is necessary to compare the care of a garden or vegetable garden with the lunar sowing calendar , because otherwise you may not wait for a good harvest. There are four phases of the moon: new moon, full moon, waxing and waning moon.


NEW MOON – Sowing and caring for plants

The new moon itself, the day before and the day after – this is the three-day phase of the moon, during which gardening must be carried out with great care. During this period, it is not recommended to plant, sow, vaccinate or huddle anything, since any of these actions will not bring the expected result. The first and last days of the phase are only suitable for removing weeds, pest control. It is also allowed to prune trees and shrubs, when pinching vegetable crops. At the very peak of the new moon, it is better not even to touch the plants, so as not to deprive them of their vital energy, but to limit ourselves to watering and surface loosening of the soil.


 WARMING MOON – sowing and caring for plants

The waxing moon phase begins immediately after the new moon and is characterized by increased activity of all metabolic processes. For plants, this is the time for the acceleration of the movement of sap and the enhanced development of their aboveground part. This is a favorable time for sowing all types of crops. Sowing any plants during this period, pruning will lead to intensive growth and the appearance of a large number of young shoots. Naturally, in any work, it is necessary to be guided by a sense of proportion, so as not to sow too thickly, and also in order to leave a sufficient number of buds on the plant to ensure its normal viability.

The growing moon and sowing plantsThe waxing moon is an unfavorable period of time for budding. Plants that were planted or transplanted in this lunar phase should be treated with increased attention , since all the forces in plants are directed to the growth of new shoots, while the root system is weakened and has a low degree of survival. Although there are advantages to transplanting with a growing moon – the roots practically do not react to damage.

During the growing moon, it is better to do sowing , planting and transplanting of leaf crops, melons, fruit and berry bushes, garden trees, strawberries. It would be nice to have time to devote time to soil processing, watering, feeding, grafting and try to root cuttings. The growing moon causes such active vital activity in plants that they need more abundant watering than usual.


 FULL MOON – sowing and caring for plants

A full moon only lasts three days, so you should try hard to get everything you need to do. This period is favorable for weeding, control of various pests and weeds, hilling and mulching. If the moon is not in the water signs of the zodiac . Then you can start collecting seeds. Also, these days are well suited for preparations (you can make homemade wine, ferment and salt vegetables, fruits), but only those that do not require heat treatment, otherwise all rolled up cans will explode. It is impossible to carry out pruning, grafting and pinching on a full moon.


WANING MOON – sowing and caring for plants

The full moon is replaced by a waning lunar phase , which increases the activity of the development of the underground part of plants. Since the roots are now undergoing significant changes, they become extremely sensitive to external stimuli, so it is better not to try to replant plants . During this period, the growth of the green part slows down.
WANING MOON - sowing and caring for plantsTherefore, pruning or pinching will lead to a slowdown in shoot growth. If you plant now, then only those plants in which the tubers are the most valuable part, that is, these are potatoes, bulbous plants, legumes and root crops. The period is favorable for digging out flower bulbs for the winter, for any seaming, weeding, cutting flowers. Watering should be limited, it is better to carry out root feeding.



The presence of the moon in one or another sign of the zodiac will be reflected in different ways on the development of plants planted at the moment. There are combinations of the lunar phase and signs of the zodiac that contribute to increased fertility, and sometimes vice versa. It is best when planting and caring for plants is carried out taking into account as many factors as possible. Among such criteria are weather conditions, the season, the characteristics of the survival rate of each variety, the phase of the Moon in the sign of the Zodiac , and the characteristics of the soil.
