Taking ma’aserot from herbs grown in planters

Question

Which poskim are lenient about eating herbs grown in planters without first taking terumot and ma’aserot?

 

Answer

Rabbi Yehuda HaLevy Amichay

There are many poskim who are lenient about herbs that only add flavor (but are not eaten on their own). This is the ruling of the Tosafot in tractates Nidda and Yoma. Rabbi Shaul Yisraeli ruled in a similar fashion.
