Savory

Savory has been used for thousands of years in its wild form and is thought to have been cultivated first in Italian kitchen gardens 1,200 years ago. Italians still make frequent use of this "savory" herb - the strongest spice around until European explorers returned from their travels with black pepper, Hot Chile Peppers and assorted other spices. Savory may be started indoors 6 to 8 weeks prior to transplanting outside after the last spring frost date. Annual and perennial types are similar except for their growth habits. Deer resistant.

Average seed life: 1 year.

Herbs may be either direct-sown outdoors after the threat of frost has passed, or started indoors for transplanting or container gardening. Herbs require moderately rich, well-draining soil with at least 5 hours of bright sunlight. To start indoors: sow lightly in sterilized seed mix, lightly moisten and cover with plastic wrap until germination takes place. Do not water again until sprouts emerge. Remove plastic wrap once sprouted. Transplant outdoors when the threat of frost has passed. Some perennials like Lavender, Catnip or Savory prefer to be started indoors. Others such as Chives, Sage or Fennel prefer to be direct-sown outside once the soil has warmed. Most herbs dislike chemicals or over-fertilization. Feed lightly with kelp or fish emulsion once seedlings are well established. Keep lightly moist: never wet. Pinch back the plants to avoid flowering and to encourage leaf production.
