The Right Time To Harvest Plants

Herbs ought to be gathered the moment the specific plant portion reaches the top of its healing power.

  • Leaves and stems – before the plant blooms. harvest in the morning as soon as the dew has disappeared but before the sun’s rays evaporates the oils.
  • Flowers – before they reach full bloom.
  • Fruits and berries – when they become ripe.
  • Roots and rhizomes – in the autumn as the leaves begin to change color, when the plants’ sap has returned down.
  • Barks and twigs – early in the year as the first leaves appear and the plants’ sap is rising.
