Always forage responsibly. It is illegal to uproot wild plants without the landowner’s permission, but you do have a right to gather leaves, fruit and stems from plants on public rights of way.
Always ask the owner’s permission to forage on private land. If you want to eat wild foods, then it is important that you know exactly what you are picking. Leaves, roots and berries of some plants are poisonous, so treat foraging with caution unless you are sure what you have is safe to eat.
Remember! It is important to test out your tolerance slowly to plants you have never eaten before.
