Lunar calendar of the gardener and gardener for december 2020 care

The avid gardener will find something to do in the garden even in December. Especially if the garden is next to the house where he lives permanently. When, if not in winter, to repair inventory, stock up on new seeds and revise old ones? The check of the planting material, which hibernates in basements and cellars, has not been canceled either. And this is just a small part of what you can do indoors. But in winter, a real gardener does not sit in the house. Clean the paths of snow, trample it under the trees and throw it on the beds, check shelters for thermophilic plants and rodent protection for young seedlings … If you want, there is so much more to do before the New Year! The lunar calendar for December 2020 will tell you which works on which days of the month to give preference.

We all remember that the shortest days are in December. Moreover, November and December are the cloudiest months of the year. In our latitudes, those same “frost and sun – a wonderful day” – it’s more about January-February (or even about March). And in December you wake up – night, then a little gray and dark again. In general, a gloomy period, in the literal sense of the word, is December.

In the West, such features of the last month of the year were “approached more cunningly.” They have December, like we have January, a holiday every day! Since November, the streets of the cities are hung with colorful illuminations, on every more or less decent square there are Christmas markets, festivals, songs and dances, in houses, cafes and shops – Christmas trees are mandatory. By the way, Europeans can begin to dismantle these very trees on New Year’s Eve, since January is the beginning of active work. And rightly so! The day is getting longer, the sun is more active, and you can already do the seedlings …

“Happy December” is gradually imposed on Russian people by marketers, but it is not in our tradition to rejoice in December! The real “walk around” comes on the last day of December and also lasts a lot – at least two weeks. So it’s a sin to complain.

And to brighten up December for a gardener, especially for those who left their favorite plants in the country for the winter, and there is no way to look at them with even one eye, houseplants, planning the next season, replenishing knowledge and studying someone else’s experience will help (“https: // farmer-online .com / “to help you) and, of course, shopping. After all, there is nothing dearer to the heart of a real gardener than buying a new planting material. And just in December there is time to do it with rapture, that is, slowly.

And if you are the lucky owner of a winter garden or greenhouse, then you have no time to be sad even in December. The best days for sowing certain crops will be suggested by our lunar calendar for December 2020.
