Thyme Compact (Thymus vulgaris 'Compactus') Herb Plant Herb in 9cm Pot

Thyme is grown the world over as it is such a versatile plant, not only is 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.

Compact Common Thyme reaches a height of 25-30 cm, this is a compact version of common thyme and it makes a neat, spreading mound of aromatic green leaves. Through the summer it is covered in masses of tiny pink-purple flowers, which butterflies and bees love.  It is suitable for planting in the rock garden, herb garden or the front of a border it will also make a very good container plant.

Compact 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, also ensure that the plant is cut back after flowering again to help maintain shape. Being a native of the Mediterranean it needs a place in full sun.
