Thymes are grown the world over as it is such a versatile plant, and its foliage is attractive, the flowers are long-lasting and very pretty, and it is drought tolerant - an overall easy-care plant.
Woolly Thyme reaches a height of 10 cm and with its small grey-green woolly leaves and 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. Woolly Thyme can be planted between paving slabs, and the aromatic scent will be intensified when trodden on.
Woolly 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.
