It is a hardy annual, and the two are only distinguished by the names of Summer and Winter Savory in reference to the time of the year in which they are fit for gathering. Summer Savory requires a soil and situation like the other, and may be sown at once about April in the bed, in very shallow drills, 1 foot apart, and the plants afterwards thinned out to half that distance from each other. In cold situations it may be forwarded in a gentle heat and afterwards planted out. For convenience, the seedlings may be lifted out and planted in little tufts, the above distances apart. When the plants flower in August they should be pulled up by the roots and dried for winter use.
