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. On top of that it is one of the most useful herbs for the kitchen.

Creeping Red Thyme reaches a height of 7 cm and with its small green leaves and bright red 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.

Creeping Red 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.

Thyme is an excellent herb for flavouring 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.

    Bought to go in between my pathway. Waiting for it to spread but I am really pleased with the plants.
