Thyme 'Camphor' (Thymus camphoratus)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.
Thyme 'Camphor' is so called as it's foliage is camphor-scented, it reaches a height of 20 cm and with its small grey green leaves and pink flowers, this thyme is suitable for planting in the rock garden, herb garden or the front of a border, or between pavers so it will release its scent when trodden on or brushed past. Thyme is also known as very good container plant.
As with all Thyme it 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.
Thyme 'Camphor' is an excellent herb for flavouring roast meat which can stand up to the stronger camphor flavour as well as stuffing and stews, it can still be added to a bouquet-garni. Pies and chutneys are also given an extra lift when this aromatic herb is added. It has also been used for many centuries medicinally and its essential oils have been used to treat aches and pains and sprains.
