Winter savory is a perennial herb that is a great addition to your herb garden. It's semi-woody, low-growing, and easy to grow. Its flavor is more earthy than summer savory with notes of marjoram, thyme, and mint. It can be used as a border along your garden beds or planted as a companion plant with your other perennial herbs.
Days to Maturity: 100 days
Plant size: 6-12” tall and 8-12” wide
Plant spacing: 8-10” apart
Sun, soil, and water requirement: Winter savory thrives in full sun and well-draining soils. Provide consistent moisture until your new plant is established, then allow your plant to dry out between watering.
Harvesting: Once plants reach 6 inches tall, the leaves may be harvested and can be used fresh or dried to use later.
Culinary: Winter savory is commonly used in foods to help enliven the flavor. You can also use the leaves fresh or dried to make vinegar, herb butter, or tea.
Nutrients: The leaves and stems are commonly used to make medicine.
Special considerations: Once established, plants can be divided easily to spread in other spots in your garden, or to share with friends and neighbors! To divide, just dig up the clump and split the root ends into several sections, and replant.
Companion planting: Grow your winter savory with beans, tomatoes, onions, and other perennials like lavender, thyme, and sage. Honeybees will be attracted to their savory flowers and cabbage moths are repelled by its aroma.
