Our Master Gardeners Suggest Pairing With:
Summer Savory is the big favorite of the "savory group" of herbs, and is a staple of cooking in Eastern Europe. There, it is always used in stuffing, sausage, and many other meat dishes and stews. It's also recommended for egg dishes, and is always the No. 1 recommendation for use with beans. The plants stay short, and are easy to grow, easy to harvest.

When and Where to Plant: Select a sunny location with well-drained soil and sow seed after last frost. Cultivate soil and enrich with vegetable food. Sow seeds on the soil surface since they need light to germinate. Press lightly into the soil.
Care: Responds well to trimming.
Harvesting: You can start to harvest lightly after 6 weeks and normally after 10 weeks. Cut down to the ground before frost in the fall and hang to dry.
