Annual or perennial plant (depending on the variety) of the labiates family. Savory owes its name to its suitability for mixed culture with bush and pole beans, as well as its use as a seasoning for bean dishes. Essential oils provide intentisven fragrance. A distinction is made between winter or mountain savory and summer savory.
Savory is a light germinator and the seeds should be sown on top of the soil, lightly pressed and watered. There are two very different groups of varieties: Winter savory is perennial and can be harvested throughout the year. Summer savory is reseeded each year and harvested over the summer months. Sowing the very small seeds over a wide area produces a natural carpet of plants. To harvest, sever the branches just above the soil surface. Follow-up sowings are possible until early July. Savory is very drought resistant.
