There are many varieties of Thyme (well over 100),
but they all have in common that
they like well drained, rather poor soils
and are almost drought tolerant.
They like to bake in full sun, and should be
regularly trimmed back to keep a good shape (unless of a creeping habit). This variety is an attractive small,
hardy evergreen shrub,
with a bushy upright habit up to 12 inches tall.
This Thyme is the best flavoured of the many available
varieties for culinary purposes.
It is used in salads, soups, stews, sauces and stuffings,
and has similar prophilactic properties to garlic.
It has pink flowers in early Summer and a strong scent.
The plants are grown in 9cm(3inch) pots, which are not included in the item to keep postage reasonable. Included in the item , where available, is the coloured label as seen in the photograph, which gives cultural and usage tips.
