Winter Savory (Satureja Montana) 200 seeds (#927)

Winter savory (Satureja montana) is a perennial herb, native to warm temperate regions of southern Europe and Mediterranean.
It is a perenial plant growing to 40 cm tall. The leaves are opposite, oval-lanceolate, 1–2 cm long and 5 mm broad. The flowers are white.
Easy to grow, it makes an attractive border plant for any culinary herb garden. It requires six hours of sun a day in soil that drains well.
In temperate climates it goes dormant in winter, putting out leaves on the bare stems again in the spring – do not cut the plant back, all those stems which appear dead will leaf out again. It is hardy and has a low bunching habit.
Winter savory has been used for hundreds of years. Both it and summer savory have been grown and used, virtually side by side. Both have strong spicy flavour. It goes particularly well with any type of mushroom, or in white sauces, and is very good in potato salads. Small amounts spice a regular salad well. It has a rich herbaceous aroma when crushed.
A good bee plant. The leaves have an aromatic fragrance. A good companion plant to grow in the garden, it does especially well with onions and beans and helps to repel insect pests.
Winter savory is often grown in the garden as a culinary herb, there are some named varieties. The flavour is said to be more coarse than that of the annual savory (S. hortensis). The plants live for several years, but as they grow older they do not make so much new growth and so are best replaced every two years
An easily grown plant when given suitable conditions, it prefers a well-drained poor stony soil and succeeds in a hot dry sunny position. It prefers an alkaline soil though it is not too fussy. It is very intolerant of soils that remain damp, especially in the winter, and dislikes shade. Plants are less hardy when they are grown in rich soils and also in wet conditions.
