Savory – Summer
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.
Suggested Planting Requirements: Starting seed inside or in starter pots is recommended to reduce competition with weeds. You may also direct sow. 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.
Growing Recommendations: If direct sowing you can plant seeds in freshly worked soil. The top 1″ of soil should be soft and finely raked. For best germination, cover seeds with finely sifted soil or potting mix and then press down gently to keep the tiny seeds in place. Seeds must stay moist to terminate. After seeds have germinated and are about 2″ tall, space them to at least 6″ apart to produce happy healthy plants. If you are transplanting savory, simply transplant with a minimum spacing of 6″ to a full sun spot in the garden during mild weather or a dappled shade spot during hot weather.
Harvesting & Storage: Harvest savory when leaves are big enough for your needs. Savory also looks great in rock gardens and is very ornamental. You can add savory to any dish but we love to add it to bean recipes, cabbage soup, and sauces. When the plant gets a bit lanky, simply cut back the herb. You can dry the herb and add to spices mixes and rubs.
