Starting from the Minoan times, if someone notices the murals, the connection of the ancient Cretans with nature and its products, is obvious, as they are represented in most of them, as they took a rather special place to the everyday life and worship. Besides the edible plants, that were the main food for the Minoans and are still a basic part of the Cretan Diet, there were also those who were objects of worship. Sacred trees of Crete carry over the centuries a great testimonial to the relationship of the locals with nature.
The collection of Herbs: the collection of the herbs takes place while the plants are in the right biological stage and the nutrients are at their peak. But that differs from one plant to another.
Α) The leaves are collected before the flourishing of the plant.
Β) The blooming parts are collected during the flourishing.
Γ) The fruits during the pick of their maturation.
Δ) The roots, after the cycle of the plants has ended

DRAINAGE: The drainage of the herbs takes place in a dark and dry place, well-aired (20ο-30ο)
