  • 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.
