Buying flowers for use in magic, this is very misleading. To rituals and spells to work they need to be collected in certain phases of the moon!

That's not necessarily true. Some herbs and flowers have lore that says picking them at a certain time with add to their magical abilities in spells and rituals, but there is no law that says you have to do so.

For example, lore says that you should pick Saint John's Wort before sunrise while the dew is still on it if you want to use it in love or divination spells. (Information found in: The Witch Book: The Encyclopedia of Witchcraft, Wicca, and Neo-Paganism. - Written by Raymond Buckland.). However, you don't have to do so. It will work just as well for the same purposes without it being specially picked.

Since the beginning of time when gathering flowers were taken into account different rules: observe certain days, times of day, phase of the moon. Some plants were collected only during a full moon or just at midnight. Others were cut with scissors just as it was believed that contact with the skin, they lose their magical qualities. Some of the plants came up with a certain hand, disrupted only after the preliminary spell or pronounce praise to appease.

At the present time, few people truly understands the herbs, flowers, roots. From one book to another, different authors re-write the same thing, and with errors.

For me, this author is not an authority. I myself write books and articles in Russian.

That may be, but I've worked with plants for as long as I can remember and I know from personal experience that you don't necessarily need to harvest a plant at a specific time. I've read several gardening books, both magical and otherwise and I prefer to harvest the plants in my own way. While how you harvest and when may need to be taken into account with certain plants it is not a universal truth. If someone is unable to harvest a plant with a certain item or at a certain time, they can still harvest it and get the same end result as someone that took a harvesting style, tool, or time into account. In my opinion and experience it's all in how you handle and consecrate/bless the plant for spell or ritual purposes. This is one of the reasons that I dislike buying plants from a store, as I have no idea how they were handled and generally stores don't take into account a plants natural magical energies or uses. I prefer to grow and harvest my own plants, herbs, etc. In this way I know that their energies or magical uses are being taken into account and handled in the proper way.

The position of the moon in the sign of the Zodiac is in the collection of herbs important role. Medicinal herbs for the treatment of a particular organ, collected when the moon is in the sign, the control of that body, are particularly effective. For example, those herbs that stimulate the digestive organs, particularly useful if they are collected in the days of the Virgin. Of the plants collected during the fish, you can make an effective cream for the feet.
Flowers: The best way to collect the spring or summer when the plant is in the juice (preferably in the afternoon). The sun should shine, or at least should be very warm to the flowers opened, and they were life-giving sap. Not very useful for those plants that have already faded.

Collect the flowers need at a young moon in the days of Flower (Gemini, Libra, Aquarius), or under the sign of Scorpio. An alternative is the moon on the rise (from Sagittarius to Gemini), if the young moon was unsuitable weather.

Make stocks for the winter should be in ascending or descending moon, because at that time, the flowers dry better.

In the magic of plants collected by strict rules. If you do not follow the rules that spell will not work!
For you, there is a difference between magic and Feng Shui ?
