SUMMER SAVORY :
Summer Savory is an easily grown annual herb with a thymey flavour, but much more prolific than thyme on my heavy soil. Use summer savory 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.
