Description:
Here is yet another Savory seed to grow! Winter Savory is a must-have herb for the herb garden. It is a woody perennial with dark green, shiny, pinnate leaves and it has a stiff texture. It is an evergreen and has small white flowers in the summer. Winter Savory herb plants can be pruned to form a low-growing aromatic hedge for the herb garden. It prefers a location in full sun and average well-drained soil. Once it is established, the Winter Savory herb does not require a lot of water. Winter Savory plants do well in containers. The herb plants are very attractive to beneficial insects.

Culinary Properties:
Winter Savory, like its Summer counterpart, is a spicy culinary herb from the Mint family that compliments fish, beans and poultry with its intense flavor. Though it loses some of this intensity during the cooking process, Winter Savory remains aromatic and is often used to flavor liqueurs and makes a beautiful garnish to any salad.

People take winter savory for intestinal disorders including cramps, indigestion, diarrhea, nausea, and intestinal gas. They also take it to treat cough and sore throat, reduce sex drive, and as a tonic.
