This stage should coincide with the most fertile day according to the lunar calendar... It is also important that the day of sowing the seeds is carefully calculated and falls on the correct lunar phase. If you follow these tips, you can significantly improve and increase your future harvest.

Fortunately, at present there is no need to independently calculate favorable and unfavorable days for planting. All the information you need is contained in sowing calendars, and you can safely trust her.
Attention! It is also important to take into account the future place of growing pepper, the climatic conditions of the area, the heating method (if necessary), as well as the type of greenhouse (polycarbonate, glass, etc.). Depending on all this information, the timing of sowing seeds, as well as planting seedlings, is calculated.
The influence of the lunar calendar on sowing
And planting pepper seeds, and further transplanting the formed seedlings into the ground - all this performed strictly on the waxing moon... It is believed that the closer the day of disembarkation is to the full moon, the better the result can be achieved. On the very days of the full moon (as well as the new moon) it is not recommended to do planting work at all.
According to the information provided by the lunar calendar, pepper for seedlings should be sown already in February or March... Specific dates directly depend on the region in which further landings will be made. For instance, in the southern regions preferred sowing dates for seedlings - from February 10 to March 1... And in more northern regions countries should do this work from March 1 to April 1.
Attention! It is important to remember that it takes at least 2.5 months to grow high-quality full-fledged seedlings. So planting earlier is recommended for those regions where the greenhouse planting period starts as early as May.
Many experienced summer residents argue that there is nothing wrong with sowing pepper seedlings later... Such seedlings are constantly warm, ripen quickly, and do not differ at all from those seedlings that were sown much earlier, in February or even January.
Sowing peppers for seedlings in January also advisable if the quality of the seeds is unknown... If there are no shoots, then after a while, at a later date, other seeds can be planted. In any case, before starting these procedures should flip through the lunar calendar and make sure planting days are favorable.
Favorable days for planting
According to the lunar sowing calendar, the best days for planting peppers for seedlings are as follows:
- In January — 19, 20, 21, 22, 25.
- In February — 2, 3, 6, 7, 16, 18, 19, 22, 23, 26, 27.
- In March — 2, 3, 6, 7.
The following are considered unfavorable days: 1, 4, 5, 25, 26, 28, 29, 30 March.
As soon as the first shoots are formed, they should be transplanted immediately. Each plant stem is placed in a separate container (you can use a regular plastic cup filled with suitable soil). As soon as 3-4 leaves appear on the stems, the plants must be transplanted into peat pots.
How to care for
In order for the harvest to be truly excellent, it is important not only to know on which days certain actions should be carried out, but also how to properly care for seedlings... Often this information is also contained in the lunar sowing calendar. It is important to adhere to all recommendations in order to achieve the best result.
There are many different factors that affect seed germination. Pay attention on temperature, shine, moisture, etc.... But often, despite high-quality care, pepper does not please with quick shoots. In this case, you need to be patient.
Attention! Sometimes the seeds do not show any signs of growth for up to several weeks, so it is not recommended to delay sowing. It is important that there is time for re-seeding if problems arise with the seedlings of the first batch.
The first feeding of the plant is carried out then, when two or three leaves have already formed on the stem... It is necessary to grow seedlings at a temperature not less than +25 degrees (during the day)... The night temperature should be + 10 degrees.
The soil of the plant must be moist. but by no means raw, otherwise leg rot may form. Watering is carried out with water at room temperature. It must be regular, because dried soil can quickly lead to plant death.
Before directly transplanting pepper into the ground it is advisable to harden seedlings... This is done by periodically placing the pots of plants on the balcony or terrace. The pepper should be left in cool air for a very short time at first. Then the duration of the stay of the plant outside the warm room is gradually increased. Important, so that the pepper gets used to temperature changes.
Attention! Planting seedlings in a greenhouse is carried out in mid-late May or even early June.
