Savory has a pleasant flavour when dried or fresh and is great in dressings and marinades. Meat dishes can be greatly improved by using a marinade of Renaissance BBQ herbs. Blend one or more of the following herbs, to taste; Greek oregano, BBQ thyme, rosemary and lemon verbena. Add to the marinade: 2 tblsp olive oil, 1 tblsp lemon juice, 1 clove crushed garlic. Soak meat in marinade for one hour and then baste regularly whilst on the grill.
Plant in dry, well drained spots with full sun and good air movement. It needs little water and does not respond well to low light or heavy wet soils.
Regular applications of Seasol and PowerFeed in spring and autumn will keep the plant healthy and growing well.
