Moon influence on tomato planting

Early varieties are acceptable to plant in the soil hole. Preparation of the more fastidious varieties includes soaking, moistening, fertilizingand the use of solutions to stimulate growth, all best done during periods of the moon in the signs of Water - Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces.

Sowing seeds or planting germinated seedsin both cases are relevant during the growth phase of the moon, especially in the signs of Earth - Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn. The power of the waxing moon helps them to take root in the ground, strengthen their roots and form the above-ground part of the plant - stems and leaves.

Transplanting tomatoesfrom a common container is also beneficial on a waxing moon - so plants take root better in their new place.

The waning moon phase gives an influx of water to the already formed root system, so it is not suitable for germinating seeds, but is acceptable when planting ready tomato seedlings into the ground under a moon in the hardy water sign of Scorpio and persistent Earth signs.

Feeding and fertilizingthe soil for young seedlings is more favorable on a waning moon in Earth and Water signs.

Tucking, thinning and pruning young plants is favorable in any moon phase in the Air signs: Gemini and Libra.

Novunions and Full Moons lasting one day each are not good for planting seeds in the ground and other manipulations. This is a time of rest for the plants.  

The lunar calendar takes into account the phases of the moon and the signs in which it falls.

The most favorable dates are in bold.
