February is the month of preparation for the planting season. In the last month of winter, vegetables and flowers are planted on the windowsill, crops are sown in the greenhouse, and the soil is plowed for spring. In late February, cold-resistant and early plants can already be planted in the ground, especially if the weather is warm.
It is very important to choose a good day according to the lunar calendar because some phases are considered unfruitful. For example, you can’t work with plants under a full moon or a new moon – these days, plants are very vulnerable.
