Plant Details

Forms a wonderful carpet of woolly grey foliage with pale mauve flowers over the summer. Looks great on rockeries, in containers and between cracks in paving. 

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.

Attractive to bees and pollinators.

Height: 7cm

Common name(s): Woolly 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.
