May is a great time to work in the garden. The ground has warmed up enough, the risk of frost is minimal, and the days are getting longer.

To get a bountiful harvest, it is important to plan your work on the land properly. Therefore, OBOZ.UA has prepared a sowing calendar to help you with this.

The lunar sowing calendar is based on long-term observations of the influence of the Moon on the growth and development of plants. It is believed that different phases of the Moon have different effects on sowing and other gardening activities.

Favorable days for gardening

The best days for gardening in May are: 3-4, 9-13, 17-22, 25-27, and 30-31.

May 3 and 4 are the best days for planting late varieties of potatoes, as well as carrots, radishes, and beets. You can also plant legumes.

May 9-13 are good days for planting and sowing eggplant, peppers, and cucumbers. You can also transplant strawberry and wild strawberry bushes and plant flowers. In addition, it is worth planting fruit trees and berry bushes on these days.

On May 25-27, pay special attention to watering your plants, especially if the month was dry. You can also start the first harvest.

May 30-31 are favorable days to devote time to fertilizing and grafting plants for further reproduction. At the end of May, all seedlings should be in their permanent place in the garden.

Neutral days for working in the garden

On these days, you can carry out plant care work. You can, for example, clean up the area, fertilize the plants, weed, germinate seeds, carry out repair work, etc.
