When to Plant Summer Savory Seeds
Sow Summer Savory seeds indoors and transplant to your herb garden about 7 weeks later. Direct sow seeds in the garden after the last frost, keeping it moist until they sprout.
Where to Plant Summer Savory Seeds
Choose a place that has well-draining soil, preferably sandy soil.
How to Plant Summer Savory Seeds
Summer Savory seeds require light to germinate, so be careful not to cover them when planting. Learn more about germination light requirements here.
If starting indoors plant seeds 1/8" deep into soil, but do not cover as these seeds need light to germinate. Transplant about 7 weeks later after germination. If direct sow, place seeds 3-5 inches apart. Place 1/8"" deep into soil and barely cover with light sand or fine soil. Germination is usually less than a week.
How to Harvest Summer Savory
Wait until the plant is at least 6 inches tall before you begin harvesting Summer Savory. You may be able to harvest summer savory lightly after 6 weeks, and a bit more after another month. Hang branches upside down in a warm, airy place, then remove leaves and store in an airtight jar.
