This is considered the best of all the savories for culinary purposes, and is grown commercially as an ingredient of salami, but its classic use as an aphrodisiac has lapsed. Plants are easily raised from seed under glass, but they are very sensitive to cold and are transferred outdoors only after the last risk of frost has passed. Start plants early in the season to provide a long harvest of the pungent leaves. Summer savory is known as the bean herb because of its reputation for preventing flatulence, and many gardeners grow the plants near broad beans to harvest both crops together.
