aka The Bean Herb and Mountain Savory
A hardy perennial evergreen with a delicious 'peppery' taste.
Commercially collected for both the leaf and the Oil.
Stronger and coarser in flavour than the annual Summer Savory.
Used as an anti-flatulant (hence its use with beans),
a flavouring and to aid digestion
and as a stimulant
(hence its reputation as an aphrodisiac).
It prefers dry chalky soils, rocky hills and mountains up to 1500M!
The plants are grown in 9cm(3inch) pots, which are not included in the item to keep postage reasonable. Included in the item , where available, is the coloured label as seen in the photograph, which gives cultural and usage tips.
