Product Information

Summer Savory seeds produce a hearty annual herb that adds a kick and spice to many dishes. When people ask how we make our amazing savory soup stocks and other dishes, the answer is always herbs! Our favorite? Savory! This herb has a complex flavor that adds savory and spicy hints to any meal. Summer Savory is also essential in Herbes de Provence. Summer Savory seeds are very small and require light to germinate. Use finely sifted soil to cover them.

Planting by Zones

Zones 9-10

  • Savory is a tasty warm-season crop that can grow from early spring through fall. Southern California growers may plant savory in the cool of fall or early winter to get established for spring.

Zones 2-8

  • Sow seeds indoors 4-6 weeks before the last frost. Plant outside after the danger of frost has passed.

Planting Summer Savory Seeds

  • Savory seeds can be direct sown or transplanted (recommended). Seeds are very small and need light for germination. For the best germination, cover seeds lightly with a very thin later of finely sifted soil. 
  • If you are starting savory in starter pots to transplant out, plant seeds on the top of moist high-quality seed starting soil and cover lightly with 1/8″ of finely sifted soil. When the seedlings have four true leaves, they can be transplanted into larger containers or into the garden. Harden off before planting outside.
  • If you are direct sowing the seeds, make sure you sow them in thoroughly moistened soil. Plant the seeds on the top of moist high-quality seed starting soil and cover with 1/4″ of finely sifted soil. Seeds must remain moist to germinate evenly and quickly. 
  • Savory thrives in full sun locations. Space plants at least 5″ apart.

Growing Summer Savory 

  • Keep your plants weed-free by pulling any weeds that may compete with your crop.
  • Cut back your savory plants if they begin to look lanky. 

Growing Summer Savory in Containers

  • Savory can easily be grown as a container crop. Make sure your container is at least 10″ deep. Keep in mind containers will dry out faster because they have more surface area and less soil to hold onto moisture.

Harvesting Summer Savory 

Southern California Pro-tips

  • Mulch heavily around your savory plants to ensure the soil does not dry out or heat up too much. Compost added to the soil at the time of planting will help retain moisture in the soil during hot, dry weather.
