Winter savory. (30 May 2020)

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.
