Satureja montana. Winter savory is a perennial woody shrub. The flavour of winter savory is a little stronger but can be used in the same recipes as the annual variety including teas, herb butter, vinegar, soups and poultry stuffing. Height 6-12". Approximately 700 seeds/pkg.
In spring, sow seeds 1⁄8 inch deep in dry, well-drained soil. Prefers full sun and average soil. Winter savory is slower to sprout than summer savory and requires less water. Too much moisture in the soil can cause winterkill.
This savory should be replaced with new plants every 2-3 years. Can be pruned to form an aromatic hedge. Cut prior to flowering for culinary or medicinal use. Hang in bundles upside down in an airy place.
