How to grow Savory

Savory (Satureja hortensis)

Savory is rapidly growing annual herb that creates abundant leaves and grows rapidly to a height of about 12 to 17 inches (30 to 45 cm). It creates slightly green leaves and pink-white flowers that bloom from July to September.

The leaves may be added to fresh salads or as an ingredient in the food industry. Extracts of the leaves are used as a gargle for sore throats. It is also used on its own or in combinations of herbs for the treatment of diarrhea, dyspepsia and as aphrodisiac.

Professional cultivation of savory

Days to germination: 7-14

Days to harvest: 60-70

How to Plant: directly in the soil or transplanting. If we choose the second, we transplant after 3 weeks.

Plant height: 10 – 18 inches (25-45 cm)

Distance between plants: 8 inches (20 cm)

In every oz. of seeds, there are about 40.000 savory seeds (1400 seeds per grammar). We need 0,3 – 0,4 oz. (8-12 gr) of seed for 1000  pots of 3,5 inches (9 cm). Alternatively, we need 17 – 22 lbs. (8-10 kg) of seeds for direct drilling of 1 hectare field. Harvest takes place gradually 70 days after the initial sowing.
