Neighbours talking over the garden gate has long been a tradition. They share gardening tips, complain about the weather and pests yet are ever eager to discuss their gardens. That is what I had in mind when creating this blog. So stop by my garden gate to find out the latest happenings in my garden.

Happy Gardening!

Winter or Summer Savory?

Summer Savory
June 9, 2010

The plant tag on this herb that I planted last year said Summer Savory which is an annual herb.  However, it came back up this year so obviously it is a perennial so I suspect that it is actually Winter Savory.  It does look like Summer Savory but I will be able to tell better when it blooms.  I don't like letting my herbs go to flower because the plant's energy is then put into reproduction rather than the leaf production I want for eating.  I planted a piece up in a pot so will let that one go to flower.  If the flower is white it is Winter Savory but if it is a lilac colour then it is Summer Savory.  Either way it is quite tasty!

Happy Gardening!
