Summer savory needs sufficient light to germinate – be very careful when pressing the seed into the soil. Once summer savory begins to bloom, its flavor is at its most intense. Best planted next to beans! Thrives well in a protected, sunny, warm location.
Annual summer savory should not be sown in the same spot the following year. Do not sow where thyme, peppermint or lemon balm were sown in years prior. Cut the herb, leaving about 5-10 cm sticking out of the ground, so that it can sprout again.
Use fresh or dried to season bean, mushroom and cabbage dishes, stews, fish, pickles, sauces, salads and fried potatoes.
