Plant Details

Green foliage which smells strongly of camphor. Used to flavour roast meats, stuffing and stews. Its essential oils have been used for centuries to treat aches and pains.

Thyme has been a favourite herb for centuries, valued for its culinary merit and curative properties. It believed that fairies lived in banks of Thyme and sprigs were burnt as offerings to gods. Many of the Thymes come from the Mediterranean region, but all are hardy provided they have a well-drained soil (or container). 

Thyme is very robust and is often planted between paving, in or over walls and in rock gardens.

Height: 20cm

Common name(s): Thyme

 

All our plants are supplied in at least 9x10cm pots. Plants in this size pot establish quickly in the garden and often outpace plants planted in bigger pots at the same time. We do not sell 'plug plants' because those need to be grown on before planting. Our potted plants can be planted immediately, unless otherwise noted, or you can leave them in their pots until you are ready to plant. We grow everything we sell ourselves, in our nursery in the Buckinghamshire countryside.
