AT planting calendar for April 2019 for gardeners and gardeners I giveNot only tips and advice on the cultivation of vegetable and fruit crops. Here are the most favorable days for sowing seeds, transplanting seedlings in greenhouses or on open beds. The summer residents will help to schedule the work in the garden, in the garden, in flower beds. Fans of indoor plants will find in it useful information about which days it is better to replant, propagate and care for them. Not forgotten are the days when working with plants is dangerous because of the risk of injury.
Work and landing plan
The lunar calendar for April 2019 is a guide for those gardeners who are just beginning to master the "basics" of crop production. For experienced gardeners, he will be a reminder of the urgent execution of the work that was planned for this month.
But before that, they need to find out how the moon and stars can affect the growing season and growth of terrestrial plants. According to astrologers, as well as from many years of observations and experiments conducted by agronomists, certain conclusions were made:
- periods of growing moon phase favorably affect the development of cultivated plants whose fruits ripen above the ground;
- if the moon is in a descending stage, then this time is beneficial for the growing season of root crops;
- full moon and new moon plus the previous and next day are considered dangerous period. At this time it is forbidden to carry out any work with greenery.
Some changes are made by the constellation of the zodiacal cosmic belt. People know them by the signs of the zodiac. Twelve constellations - 12 characters. Their names are identical. The moon travels in its orbit and at a certain time is influenced by a constellation. Astrologers divide them by degree of productivity relative to the cultures of the earth: fertile, neutral, unproductive and fruitless.
It is recommended to engage in planting and caring for plants on the days when the most promising signs “work”: Cancer, Libra, Taurus, Scorpio, Pisces. The remaining signs: Capricorn, Aries, Sagittarius and Gemini - unproductive, and barren - Aquarius, Leo and Virgo.
Planting day is the moment when the seeds of the plants are in favorable conditions for the start of development (sowing). At this time, the embryo receives a powerful charge of positive energy coming from the moon.

Favorable and unfavorable days
It is not recommended to plant the plants in the days prohibited by the lunar calendar. In April 2019, the prohibition of 4-6 and 18-20 (inclusive) numbers. Gardeners can calculate the most suitable days on their own. An example of calculation.
- selected culture - carrots (root);
- good days - the phase of the waning moon (from 1 to 3 and from 21 to 30 April);
- fertile signs at this time - Pisces (2-3, 29-30 numbers), Scorpio (21 numbers).
The second option:
- we choose tomatoes (not a root crop);
- beneficial days of landing - the growing moon phase from April 7 to April 17;
- The most productive signs in this period are Cancer (11-12 numbers) and Libra (18-19).
Pruning trees and bushes is impossible with a growing moon (see table). The plant growth energy, in this case, is concentrated in the upper part. Damage to branches can disrupt the natural movement of the juices inside the trees. This will lead to an active release of cadmium.
Prevention of diseases and pests
In April, the plants swell buds, the first leaves appear. This means there is a danger of attacking harmful insects. They eat young shoots, carry fungi of infectious diseases. We need to start intensive preventive treatment of the garden.
The most suitable time for this in April will be the days of the full moon and new moon (the 5th and 19th). Insects are less active during this period, easily amenable to destruction.
Simultaneously with the treatment of plants with means of pests carry out prevention of fungal diseases. Processing of saplings, trees and bushes can be carried out, both in the period of the growing, and during the waning Moon. Plants do not hurt. It is only necessary to take into account the purpose of prevention. If you need to protect the root system, it is better to handle the roots when the moon decreases. With the protection of the aerial parts - when the phase is growing.
This can be explained by the fact that at such suitable times the energy of the plants is concentrated, respectively, in the roots or tops. They absorb solutions for prophylaxis well, accumulate them inside and resist diseases and pests for a longer time.
One of the methods of fighting insects is to attract birds to the garden. For this we need bird houses and feeders.
Caring for flowers in the house is the proper organization of watering, fertilizing, breeding and transplants. All these procedures are best carried out in those days when the moon is under the influence of certain signs of the zodiac.
|Days||Zodiac signs||April numbers||Plant species|
|Flower||Gemini, Aquarius, Libra||1, 9, 10, 18, 19, 27, 28||Beautiful flowering plants: geranium, rose, Decembrist, cyclamen, primrose|
|Sheet||Scorpio, Cancer, Pisces||2, 3, 11, 12, 20, 21, 29, 30||Curly vines: ivy, zebrin, tradescantia|
|Fetus||Sagittarius, Aries, Leo||4-6, 13-15, 22, 23||Ornamental trees: lemon, coffee, pomegranate, pineapple, mango|
|The root||Virgo, Taurus, Capricorn||7, 8, 16, 17, 24-26||Bulb flowers: hyacinth, Indian onion, amaryllis|
If proper care is taken on the recommended days, the home greenhouse will constantly delight the owners of the house and guests with bright greenery, rich color of flowers and fragrant aroma.
The lunar calendar is a kind of “crib” not only for beginning gardeners and gardeners. Experienced breeders also often use it. Many summer residents make their calendars, conduct experiments in practice. Convinced (or denied) the benefits of this helper's advice and recommendations.
