Bernd Simon


Bernd Simon, born in 1957, is a landscape engineer with a private herb garden and herb distillation. Since 1997 he has been specializing in the cultivation of culinary herbs. The herbs are planted on a private farm in Enkenbach-Alsenborn. In three large greenhouses, over 200 kinds of herbs were grown and some of those were cut to produce new plants. Of basil alone, he offers 20 different kinds. Important for customers: „None of the herbs were injected; if they were treated at all, it was with biological products”, the gardener assures.

Since 2002 he has been a regular guest at SWR’s live show „Kaffee oder Tee”, where he speaks as a herbalist about cultivation, planting and flavors.
