A light harvest of Summer Savory can be made after about 6 weeks. Pick the leaves as and when required. For drying, Summer Savory is best harvested in August.
Sow Summer Savory seeds from late winter to spring at 18-20C (65-68F), in a good quality seed compost, at a depth of 1.5mm. Place in a propagator or seal the seed tray inside a polythene bag until after germination, which usually takes 14-21 days. Keep the compost damp but not wet. When seedlings are large enough to handle, transplant into 7.5cm (3in) pots and grow them on in cooler conditions until large enough to plant outdoors. When alyssum plants are well grown and all risk of frost has passed, acclimatise them to outdoor conditions over 7 to 10 days. Transplant outdoors in full sun on any well drained soil at a distance of 38cm (15") apart.
