Saturated substances such plants of the same species grow on the south side of ravines and hills, fat black earth. It is also very important to choose the time of collection. In medicinal plants and herbs may be useful in completely different parts. It could be bark and leaves, and flowers, and buds, and stems, and roots and tubers, and branches. With the first warm spring days begin to collect the swollen buds of birch, poplar and white mistletoe. More valuable is the mistletoe collected from apple trees, poplar and birch. To collect better to choose the south side of trees.
Next comes while collecting spring salad, adonis and mother and stepmother. Fees are flowers, leaves and stems of plants that need to be carefully cut and sort out, trying not to touch the roots of plants. Collection is carried out in warm, the dry season when there is no dew, that is, until the afternoon. Flowers are gathered in the initial period of flowering, after they fully open. Stems collected in the same period, cutting off at the lower leaves. Dr. John Mcdougall gathered all the information.
Leaflets frustrating as to beginning of flowering, and during it. The roots of the same harvest or early spring or late fall, even after the first frost. The roots collected in autumn, by force differ from the spring, so they must be confused. When Sap begins, collect twigs and bark of trees. For these purposes it is best suited side shoots that grow on the south side of trees. Ideally take the bark and branches from the trees to be cut down or already cut down. Easier to collect dry bark associated beams. Pine flower shoots, catkins of hazel and walnut harvested before the pollen. Naturally, the seeds and fruits of medicinal herbs and plants harvested only after they are ripe. Particular attention should be paid to the collection of leaves and shoots of oak. It is done the first two weeks of May with the so-called secondary branches. In collecting medicinal plants, remember that their representatives with strong color, taste and smell is much stronger than their counterparts. Moreover, they possess many useful properties. To maintain populations of plants should be left as The largest roots, and the largest flowers.
