Winter Savory (Satureja montana) is in the Lamiaceae family of plants originating in southern Europe.
S. montana is a dwarf, sub-shrubby perennial with narrowly lance-shaped dark green leaves and dense spikes of small, whorled purple flowers in summer. (RHS Plants)
Winter savory thrives in well-drained semi-fertile soil in full sun. Think southern mediterranean conditions – hot and fairly dry in well draining, not-rich soil.)
They are generally pest and disease free.
Winter savory can be propagated by softwood cuttings in summer.
Our winter savory is growing in a pot up at our allotment.
