Summer Savory Seeds (Organic)

Summer Savory Seeds (Organic)

Taste-Boosting Herb

Summer Savory, known scientifically as Satureja hortensis, is a flavorful herb with a rich history dating back to ancient times. Originating from the Mediterranean region, particularly in areas like southern Europe and the Middle East, it has been cultivated for its culinary and medicinal properties.

The plant features small, narrow leaves that are bright green in color, creating a dense, aromatic foliage. During summer, it produces tiny, delicate white to pale pink flowers, enhancing its aesthetic appeal in gardens.

Taste-wise, Summer Savory offers a slightly peppery and minty flavor with hints of thyme, making it a versatile herb in various culinary dishes. Its leaves are commonly used fresh or dried to season meats, stews, vegetables, and legumes, adding a savory depth to dishes.

When planting Summer Savory from seed, it thrives in well-draining soil with good moisture retention. Sow seeds directly into the ground in early spring after the last frost date, ensuring a depth of about a quarter-inch to half an inch. Adequate sunlight and regular watering support healthy growth.

This herb appreciates full sun and warm conditions, making it suitable for Mediterranean-like climates. It's also adaptable and can grow in various soil types, provided they are well-draining. With its robust flavor and easy-growing nature, Summer Savory remains a popular choice among gardeners and culinary enthusiasts seeking to enhance the taste of their dishes with a touch of Mediterranean zest.

Planting & Care

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 fresh the summer. 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.
