"You can harvest the flowers, fruit & foliage of any plant, tree or shrub, growing wild on any land."

I think there must be quite a few exceptions to that, no?

You certainly couldn't over here. You'd be shot  :(

I'm gonna try growing some next year.    IMO the taste depends on having cool "moving" water (but I've never done it myself).

No - as I say you can't trespass & you can't sell on.
Did it really tell you to do THAT on the packet?

Seeds are SOWN, planting's for plants (and bulbs & tubers)!

Would protected/rare plants have special protection ?

Don't you have Natura2000 and the WFD in UK ? 
We're  not supposed to touch just about anything now. Can't even collect moss in the forest any more  :(
