Hunt for Herbs in the wild

Some of the wild herbs to look out for in Spring

Some of the wild herbs to look out for in Summer

Remember if you are picking herbs in the wild to think before you pick.

The Woodland Trust has useful guidelines on foraging.  They suggest that you “forage sustainably and responsibly, and make sure you stay safe and within the law”.

The Woodland Trust also provide a useful guide to what to look out for month-by-month. Note, not all of the plants they highlight may be common in North East Yorkshire. As we build up our bank of photos of herbs in the area we will add them so that you know what to look out for along with suggestions of how people are using them.
