Herbs are not really a thing in D&D 5e: there is no list of existing herbs nor are there specific recipes for potions.
So what does the PHB description of the herbalism kit mean with herbs?
Its just a basic description the crafting rules want you to literally cough up the ingredients in hard cold cash. You don't need to forage for herbs or buy them from a store you just need to pay for it.
Even though there are spells like hallow which needs components like "herbs" and some other stuff with a worth of 1000gp meaning an arcane focus or a comp pouch wont work.
You would think that there would be a section about finding herbs or buying them or anything specific -- sorry to say there is nothing of the sort.
So either the DM needs to make something up like you going to a store saying "Hello, I want to buy 1000gp worth of herbs," and he gives you a bag of herbs.
Or he can make up some homebrew recipe list (which would not really be homebrew, because these things are supposed to be made up by the DM).
