Herbs respawn every time you fast travel to a tower, and several towers have a few herbs visible from them on the mini-map, which makes for quick farming, rather than searching through the map. Below are the 10 Survivalist Challenges, along with the best towers to farm from.

#1 - 2 x Niphredil
Udun Foothills (2)

#2 - 3 x Pipeweed, 1 x Lothrond
Udun Foothills (2 x Pipeweed)
Barrows of Udun (1 x Lothrond - East/North East of the tower in a ditch)

#3 - 2 x Azuradan, 2 x Remmenthond
Barrows of Udun (1 x Azuradan)
The Black Road (2 x Remmenthond)

#4 - 1 x Azuradan, 2 x Lothrond, 2 x Niphredil
Barrows of Udun (1 x Lothrond, 1 x Azuradan)
Udun Foothills (2 x Niphredil)

#5 - 4 x Blue Milk, 2 x Mallos
Fern Outskirts (1 x Blue Milk)
Barrows of Udun (1 x Mallos)
Note by BSimmons4Prez : 1 x Blue Milk can be found under the bridge just East of the Tower at the Barrows of Udun. This will help you get that challenge done earlier in the game.

#6 - 3 x Elgaran, 3 x Earthbread
Cape of Nurn (1 x Elgaran, 1 x Earthbread)

#7 - 4 x Alfirin, 3 x Gwinuial
Cape of Nurn (1 x Alfirin)
Durthang Outskirts (1 x Gwinuial)

#8 - 3 x Carandol, 2 x Naugrimbas, 2 x Orchamarth
Fern Outskirts (2 x Carandol - These are located under the bridge directly west of the tower. Note: toddycst reports 2 more Carandol under the bridge south east of the tower)
Fort Morn (1 x Naugrimbas, 1 x Orchamarth)

#9 - 7 x Athelas
Fort Morn (1 x Athelas)

#10 - 3 x Blue Milk, 2 x Elgaran, 2 x Gwinuial
Fern Outskirts (1 x Blue Milk)
Cape of Nurn (1 x Elgaran)
Durthang Outskirts (1 x Gwinuial)
