Summer Savory

Summer Savory

You'll like the peppery taste Summer Savory brings to the table. Whorls of light purple flowers adorn the plant in summer.

The peppery-tasting leaves keep coming as fast as you can pick them from the prolific plants! Terrific used fresh or dried to season beans, meats and stuffing, and a great salt substitute, Summer Savory is one of the essential ingredients in Herbs de Provence (along with rosemary, thyme and oregano). Whorls of light purple flowers add a touch of color to the green-leafed plants in the summertime.

Height: 12-20in (30-50cm)

Exposure: Full Sun - 6+ hours direct sun

Plant in the garden in a full sun area.  Water well to establish the plant.

Keep Savory evenly moist watering regularly if there is not sufficient rainfall. 

While savory plant is growing and when you are using fresh savory for cooking, use only the tender growth on the plant. At the end of the season, harvest the entire plant, both woody and tender growth and dry the leaves of the plant for so that you can use the herb over the winter as well
