Heirloom Herb. Summer savory seeds are easy to grow. The herb plant has a delicious flavour. Slender, bronze-green leaves are suitable for fresh or dried use in dressings, salads, gravy and stews. Mix in equal proportions sweet paprika, salt and dried summer savory for a colourful and exotic alternative to the monotony of table salt. Plants grow 30-60 cm (12-24″) high and are quite suitable for container growing. Also known as Bohnenkraut.
