Savory is native to southern Europe, winter savory thrives in sunny, well-drained sites. Savory is commonly cultivated as a garden herb. The flowering tops are collected in summer.
Plant seeds of summer savory in a rich, light, moist soil; thin to 8 inches apart. It can be propagated by seed, division, or cuttings.
Growing in containers - Summer annuals mix well with savory in a large container. You can use a standard potting soil and fertilize plants grown in containers every 3-4 weeks. Trim the tips of branches often to encourage bushy growth and prevent flowers from forming. (which will sap useful energy.) Summer savory seeds can be started at any time and grown indoors in a cool and bright place.
