HERB SEEDS: Savory - Summer
Herb Seed Index > Savory - Summer
Family: Lamiaceae (Mint)
This easy growing aromatic spice has flavours similar to thyme and wild oregano. Summer savory likes full sun and grows to 46 cm (18 in). In late May sow 5 mm (3/16 in) deep in shallow furrows at a rate of 1 seed every 2.5 cm (1 in). Cover, tamp, and wait for rain. Space rows 30 cm (1 ft) apart. Thin to just a few plants per 30 cm (1 ft) of row - fresh thinnings can be used in cooking. Harvest in flower by cutting and hanging to dry. Strip the leaves and flowering tops from the dried stalks and store in a glass jar.
