Species of savory originate from warm temperate regions and are annual and perennial low-growing herbs and shrubs. These plants appreciate sunny places and are fairly self-sufficient provided that they are not wading in soggy soils or crowded and shaded by neighbours. Savories are decorative and make a seasoning that is subtle and fragrant. The taste of summer savory is often considered to be superior to its winter cousin but the summer variety is only avavilable for several months while the winter one can be used from early spring to December and reliably comes back year after year.
This delicate, aromatic little plant grows quickly in rich soil. Used in bean, pea and lentil recipes, summer savory has a more delicate flavour than winter savory. Sow in the spring. After flowering, pull it up and hang to dry. Let a few go to seed. Plant height: 25cm (10").

Winter savory resembles its summer cousin but is a perennial with thicker leaves that are sturdier and stronger-flavoured. The little bush will grow in alkaline soil. Savory is a lovely, if unfamiliar aromatic edging for an herb garden.
