Do you want to fertilize savory in Washington, but don’t know when the best time to do so is?
Fertilizing savory is not as easy as it seems.
- Savory requires a specific time to be fertilized and a particular amount of fertilization.
So if you fertilize them too early they will die and if you fertilize them too late you won’t get any harvest.
And if you fertilize too much you will “burn” your plant and if you don’t fertilize enough your savory plant won’t grow quickly and large enough to bear a high-yield harvest.
Today, I’m going to teach you the ideal time to fertilize savory in Washington:

When to Fertilize Savory in Washington
There are two specific times you should fertilize your savory plants:
- You should immediately fertilize your savory plants with a 10-10-10 NPK balanced fertilizer mix. Water soluble fertilizer tends to be better for herb plants like savory. The fertilizer should either be mixed with the soil you are planting or in the hole before you transplant your savory into the ground. This will allow your plants to grow quicker and larger.
- The second round of fertilization should be applied just as your savory plant begins to grow large, edible leaves. You will want to still use a balanced fertilizer mix, preferably water-soluble. You will want to apply it to your soil and immediately water after and will continue to do this every 2 – 4 weeks. This will allow your savory plant to bear bigger and more harvest.
When NOT to Fertilize Savory in Washington
There are certain times you should not fertilize your savory plant.
- Don’t fertilize seedlings that are less than 1 month old.
- Don’t fertilize savory plants without immediately watering them after.
- Don’t fertilize savory plants once they have large, edible leaves on them.
- Don’t fertilize savory after the initial fertilization period or before large, edible leaves begins to grow on your plant.
How Much Fertilizer Should I Apply to My Savory Plants?
The amount of fertilization you apply will depend on the specific type of savory plant you have.
As a general rule you should:
- Always follow the instructions on your fertilizer package. Never apply more than the recommended amount.
- Apply the proper amount of fertilization around your savory plant and never directly on it or on its stem.
- Provide the same amount of fertilization each time you apply it so that your savory plant does not become shocked by too many or too few nutrients.
