  1. Cut off the herb with scissors or knife. Leave a shoot, so the plant can drive out again.
  2. Do not harvest at the roadside or near cultivated fields due to pollution.
  3. Harvest culinary herbs before flowering - they often change their taste afterwards and can become bitter or woody.
  4. Cutting fresh herbs just before consumption - they quickly wither and lose their aroma. Important: Only use healthy, flawless plant parts!
  5. Only collect what you know. If in doubt, prefer to stand, because herbs can be poisonous!
