Care & Harvest

Bundle of Savory on white background

🌱 Germination: Germination and true leaf growth can be slow. If your yCube has sprouted but true leaves have not formed, or if it has sprouted but roots are not visible after 14 days since you first saw it sprout, add the yCube to your Gardyn with plant food in it to help kick start its next phase of growth!

💡Temperature: Prefers warmer temperatures (65-85°F).

✂️ Pruning: Remove leaves with brown spots if they appear. Check the roots monthly and trim any that are brown or extending past the yPod. Snip flowers as they appear to extend the plant’s life. 

🔎 Plant Health: Spidermites are a common pest, but you can use our prevention tricks to keep them at bay!

🌿 Harvest: Harvesting frequently helps prolong the plant’s life. Pinch off individual leaves, or use clean shears to cut stems above growth nodes. You can begin harvesting Savory once it reaches 6 inches. However, the best flavor is when flower buds have formed but not yet bloomed. Just before the flowers bloom, cut the leafy tops at the base of the stem.

Quick Facts

Native to Eurasia and North Africa, Savory has been used for millennia as a seasoning as well as a medicinal plant. It is also commonly known as Summer Savory, which differentiates it from its slightly more bitter counterpart, Winter Savory. Historically, Savory was also used in love potions as a supposed aphrodisiac.

Savory grows 8-16 inches tall with thick, square stems covered in fine hairs and delicate, feathery leaves. Savory produces pale pink flowers that are small and fragrant. Its flavor is reminiscent of thyme and oregano with notes of mint. Savory contains a variety of beneficial polyphenolic compounds that contribute to its antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory properties.

Enjoy Savory leaves fresh or dry to season dishes with beans, vegetables, meats, and sauces. You can steep Savory into tea, flavor vinegar or oil with it, or substitute it anywhere you’d use Thyme.
