Organic Summer Savory
HEIRLOOM Aromatic and utterly delectable, savory’s flavor is reminiscent of bright, effervescent thyme and we cannot imagine summer without her. Savory’s exquisitely etheric 2′ branches thrive in gardens, raised beds and containers as well as in sun and partial shade. We enjoy Summer Savory both fresh and dry in salad dressing as well as freshly steamed green beans, fish, poultry & eggs. A perennial in the South, Summer Savory is alas an annual here in the Northeast.
At Fruition, we sow savory indoors in soil blocks six weeks before we aim to transplant them, transplanting out any time after final frost and through early August, with one foot between plants.

An excellent plant, and one of my favorite herbs. It is excellent tossed stems and all into a soup of smoked ham, onion, potatoes, and green beans. The plants thrived in the heat of summer, happily springing back with plenty of fresh growth after several pretty severe harvests. Full stems store well and maintain their flavor when kept in the freezer to be used throughout the winter.
