Thyme, Carraway - Thymus herba-barona
A native of Southern Europe, Carraway Thyme, or Thymus herba-barona is now grown the world over as it is such a versatile plant. Its foliage is attractive, the flowers are long-lasting and very pretty, it is drought tolerant - an overall easy-care plant. On top of that it is one of the most useful herbs for the kitchen.
Carraway Thyme reaches a height of 15 cm and with its small green leaves and rose pink flowers, is suitable for planting in the rock garden, herb garden or the front of a border. Thymes are also known as very good container plants. Carraway Thyme is an excellent ground cover, and will quickly cover an area, wspecially where conditions are ideal.
Carraway Thyme likes a well-drained light soil, and it should not be too rich in nutrients as this will only encourage the plant to grow 'leggy' and lose its compact shape. Being a native of the Mediterranean it needs a place in full sun.
Carraway Thyme is an excellent herb for flavouring bread and meat, stuffings and stews, and is ideal added to a bouquet garni. Pies and chutneys are also given an extra lift when this aromatic herb is added.
