Speick is harvested during the "30 Days of Women and Herbs", which is the time from Assumption Day on 15th August to The Feast of the Holy Name of Mary on 12th September.

Speick is one of the plants that has been given a special role in the ceremonial driving down of cattle from the mountain pastures into the valley in autumn.
