Hunters have an excuse for missing out on collecting professions - they will rarely give up mob tracking to track herbs or ore. But other classes shouldn't have a problem. My 61 resto shammy has been herb/alch since the beginning. I just made sure to keep herb tracking up and pick everything I saw. He was 315 herbalism by level 50 because some herbs in the Swamp of Sorrows and Hinterlands still give skill ups that high. Alchemy was much more frustrating because I would often learn cool new recipes using herbs that could only be found in the next higher level zones. Herb skill wasn't the problem, it was fending off the mobs while picking flowers.Once you are high level, however, raising herbalism or mining is a breeze as you can run through most zones with no problems. Just find a list of herbs or ore with the minimum level you can pick or mine them and keep moving to higher level herbs as soon as you have the skill. You can easily pick/mine only orange herbs/ores and get a skill up every time. With mining, you also have smelting skill ups to help you along.
