Description

An easy-to-grow annual herb with the taste of thyme but much more prolific. Use as a companion plant against black fly on broad beans.

Savory and broad or runner beans taste delicious together too, just the beans, a clove of garlic, plenty of summer savory and a dash of cream.

Please note, illustrated packets are being introduced gradually over the coming months, availability may vary.
