Savory – Summer

Size: #4

Description: Savory is originally from the Mediterranean and was used heavily by the Romans for flavoring and potherbs. Summer Savory has long rounded leaves that taper at the base and will bloom with small pink or white flowers that form spikes. The older leaves and the blooms aren’t really suitable for use. The younger, more tender leaves are what you want. Unlike Winter Savory, Summer Savory is an annual and will last until the first frost.

Spacing: Plant 9″ to 12″ apart.

Height: Grows 10″ to 12″ tall.

How To Grow: Plant in full sun.

Outstanding Features: Savory can be used in a wide variety of dishes from wild game to beans to fish, potatoes and many more. It can be used fresh or dried.

Tips: Keep the old growth trimmed back to promote new shoots and more tender leaves. The older growth tends to have tough leathery leaves and more damage from insects. Keeping it trimmed also keeps the plant clean looking and gives it more room for air to flow around the lower stems.

Uses: Culinary Herb, Garden Bed, Containers, Rock Gardens
