Aromata Summer Savory

Satureja hortensis. More delicate in flavor than Winter Savory, this new variety imported from Germany features intensely aromatic leaves on compact plants. Savory was considered an aphrodisiac and is thought to have been named after the mythological Satyr: half man, half beast, preoccupied with Bacchanalian pleasures. Raise transplants in early spring: sow thinly in pots, providing light, ventilation and warmth. Transplant to the garden when seedlings are large enough to handle. Pinch to encourage bushiness. Savory is a classic herb for Bean dishes. Annual. Height: 6" to 12". (OP.)

  • Information
  • 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.
