I cannot answer anything about preserving herbs and the time to harvest if its at years end but know when to harvest during the active period and how to do it and use them.

Experience in the area

I know how to use them and which herbs to use together. I know how to propagate them and the best time to plant them. I have grown my own herbs and even tried growing Cumin from seed but with no success and they died at the seedling stage but all the other herbs came on great. I have grown Oregano and Chives from division, Thyme, Basil, Parsley, Coriander, Spearmint, Dill,Garlic Chives and Chives from seed, Sage, Rosemary and Marjoram from cuttings and grown Apple Mint from root cuttings and rooted shoots. I also know about herbs that are regarded as garden or wild flowers and know how they are used and grown. I know about Sunflower, Calendula, Tropeaolum, Lavender, Feverfew and Cardoon; just to name a few of the garden types. Now for the wildflowers; I know about Primula, Evening Primrose, Poppy, Foxglove, Nettles, Borage, Comfrey, Violets and Honeysuckle etc. I know when to prune them and propagate them and where to find them. I know how to harvest them and the best time to go looking for them. I have read a lot of books and I have taken note on where they grow and when they are at their best when I have been out and about.
