Single Packet of 500 Seeds
Grow a garden filled with Winter Savory herbs, from freshly harvested Satureja montana seeds. Winter Savory is an evergreen herb that displays slender, dark green leaves through 3 of the 4 seasons. These herbs have a higher content of Thymol than it's relative "Summer Savory," meaning that it has a stronger flavor. Winter Savory plants will grow to a mature height of roughly 10 to 16 inches tall, making them perfect for pots & containers, or even in window boxes as well. The plants are primarily grown for culinary uses, however Winter Savory will also make a great addition to the garden when used as an ornamental plant. Their light pink to lilac colored blooms will open up during the late Summer months, attracting all sorts of beneficial insects to the garden, such as bumblebees, honeybees, butterflies and hummingbirds as well.
Categorized as a perennial flowering herb, Winter Savory will establish a deep root system in it's initial year of growth. This root system will allow the herbs to thrive during the warm seasons. When the plant life on the surface wilts during the Winter, the roots remain dormant, awaiting the warm temperatures of Spring to begin producing again. If allowed to flower, fresh seeds can be collected in the later months of Autumn, once the flowers have dried.
