Spring is a busy time for gardeners and vegetable growers. In April, you can already plant not only seedlings but also many vegetables and flowers directly into the open ground. You should take care to dig the garden thoroughly and apply fertilizers to get a generous and healthy harvest.

Attention has long been paid to the sowing calendar. Depending on the phases of the moon, favorable days for planting crops were determined. OBOZ.UA publishes the sowing calendar for April and tells you what days to plant and graft plants

Moon phases in April 2024

From April 1 to April 7, the moon will be waning. This period is also called the waning or rotten moon phase. It is advised to pay special attention to the root system of plants. You can plant tubers, onion plants, and root crops, as well as fertilize and prune plants, and take measures to protect them from pests.

During the new moon period, which falls on the 8th of April, nothing is usually planted. No fertilizers, no sowing, no planting, no reproduction – our ancestors considered this period to be completely unfavorable for gardening. The only thing that could be done was pruning or preventive maintenance in the garden.
