When to make an emergency landing
February is more of a time to prepare for the summer season. The choice of landing days in February-2021 will depend not only on the phases of the moon, but also on specific climatic conditions. At this time, there are still sharp temperature changes, so you need to protect the trunks of fruit trees. On warm February days, to protect fruit trees from ultraviolet radiation, a solution of lime milk is used – for its preparation, dilute 300 g of lime in 10 liters of water. If the air temperature drops below-5 ° C, then you can carry out sanitary pruning of Apple, pear, cherry, plum, etc. In the middle of the month, seed crops should be grafted using cuttings. Grafted plants are placed in a box, sprinkled with moistened sawdust – and left in a warm place for 7-10 days (it is necessary to ensure room temperature). After 10 days, the plants are gradually hardened, placed for storage in the cellar, then planted in the open ground.
At the end of February 2021, favorable planting days should be established in Central America and southern regions for planting onions, spring garlic, most types of flower plants, and seedlings of greenhouse crops (peppers, cucumbers, tomatoes). In the warmest regions, you can plant potatoes. Also, at the end of the month, berry bushes should be pruned in time – before the buds swell, get rid of large buds on currants, since there is a high probability of finding wintering pests there. When the thaw comes, it is important to remember to remove the covering material from the strawberries to ensure that the plant has access to oxygen.
