Savory 'Summer' - 150-200+ Seeds

Satureja hortensis

Summer savory 'Midget' is a compact variety. This fast-growing annual provides an abundant supply of leaves, growing quickly to a height of about 25cm, with slender bronze green leaves and rose-white tubular flowers. This herb has leaves that are so tender they can be added fresh to salads or used as a garnish. It is used in herb combinations, such as ‘Herbes de Provence’ and brings out the best in stews and vegetable dishes. It also shines as a seasoning for roasting meats, chicken, and fish. Bottling it in vinegar will preserve the fresh, summery flavor. Often used to complement the flavour of beans.

This dwarf form has a compact habit and a high essential oil content.

A great plant for borders and rockeries. Highly attractive to bees.

Can be grown in containers. A perfect edition to your herb garden!
