This season we also decided to grow Summer Savory.


There are 30 different species of Savories. The 2 that we are most common with are Summer Savory and Winter Savory.
Summer Savory

Savory is a low growing herb, reaching heights of 15-50 cm.

Savory is used a lot in Italian Cuisines.

It has a peppery flavor.

It is also said that Savory helps ease flatulence. Which is also why a lot of times it is used in bean dishes.

Leaf infusions are gargled for sore throats.

It is also used for diarrhea, indigestion and as an aphrodisiac.
