With slender bronze green leaves and lilac tubular flowers, this hardy annual makes an attractive addition to the herb garden. Summer Savory lends an aromatic peppery tang to soups and seafoods. It's mild flavour is useful as an alternative to sage or thyme, and it is also used to aid digestion, reduce fevers and soothe bee stings.

Grown next to broad beans it is reputed to help repel black fly. Gather Summer Savory when harvesting your broad beans and cook them together - it does wonders for the flavour. The secret is to have your Summer Savory 15cm (6in) tall by early May to plant out amongst your beans! Height: 45cm (18"). Spread: 30cm (12").


1 packet (400 summer savory seeds) (24923)

Sow Summer Savory seeds from late winter to spring at 18-20C (65-68F), in a good quality seed compost, at a depth of 1.5mm. Place in a propagator or seal the seed tray inside a polythene bag until after germination, which usually takes 14-21 days. Keep the compost damp but not wet. When seedlings are large enough to handle, transplant into 7.5cm (3in) pots and grow them on in cooler conditions until large enough to plant outdoors. When alyssum plants are well grown and all risk of frost has passed, acclimatise them to outdoor conditions over 7 to 10 days. Transplant outdoors in full sun on any well drained soil at a distance of 38cm (15") apart.
A light harvest of Summer Savory can be made after about 6 weeks. Pick the leaves as and when required. For drying, Summer Savory is best harvested in August.
