For the record, I, as an herbalist/enchanter, have done just fine farming mats from BoE greens that drop from enemies and BoP greens from quest rewards. If I need more enchanting reagents, I can sell the herbs to fund buying them off of the auction house, which is really a better alternative these days than crafting gear and disenchanting it, especially considering the gear or the mats used to make it would probably sell for more than the mats themselves, so it's a better alternative to sell the gear or mats and use that money to buy the enchanting mats.

Same set up I have on my main, especially since when you need mats to level it up, you can get a lot of low level, rather useless green items on the AH by just placing a low bid and waiting for the auction to finish. And since Herbalism gives me the mats I need for flasks and our guild has a few alchemists to help out in making them, there's no need for me to switch to another profession.

Considering how expensive enchanting is to level, I really recommend going for a gathering profession to help fund it.

I leveled enchanting/mining on one of my characters and I never had any problems at all getting the materials for it. You don't have to level up your enchanting the quickest and all of the quests and instances you do will eventually provide you with plenty of materials.In fact, I think tailoring just slows you down when it comes to leveling professions. Both tailoring and enchanting are pretty time consuming and hard to level at the higher ranks. Tailors often have to spend a long time or a lot of money getting a ton of cloth to make even a few pieces of gear for skill ups. Same for enchanting near the end. You don't end up making enough with Tailoring to supply your enchanting; you HAVE to go to outside sources. In that sense, tailoring needs enchanting more than enchanting needs tailoring.
