Summer Savory - - Satureja hortensis

Tender Annual Heirloom. The tiny leaves of Summer Savory will add big peppery accents to your dish. This annual has a flavor similar to thyme and is a great addition to your bouquet garni. A traditional herb for sausages and sauerkraut. Summer Savory is an attractive container plant.

Soil & Water: Needs light to germinate so do not cover with soil. Press into well-drained soil but do not cover. Water regularly since it will die back if soil dries out.

Planting & Growing: Direct sow after the last frost. The seeds are slow to germinate but once they do they grow quickly and often become leggy. If plants lean, mound soil around the bases.

Harvesting & Storage: Cut and use the stalks and leaves throughout the summer and use them fresh. Use the tender stalks as well as the leaves early in the summer, and later in the summer use only the leaves. Dry the leaves at the end of the summer for use throughout the year.

Did You Know? Tea from Summer Savory leaves is a traditional remedy for sore throats and upset stomachs.
