Thymus citriodorus 'Bertram Anderson' (Thyme 'Bertram Anderson') Herb Plant


Some Herbs may be too tall for our standard packaging and will be trimmed to fit. This will not be detrimental to the plant but will mean that these herbs will flower later in the year.

The Blister packs used to protect our beautiful herbs during transit are made from 100% recycled plastic and can be recycled kerbside.

Thyme 'Bertram Anderson' (Thymus citriodorus 'Bertram Anderson') Herb in 9cm Pot

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.

Thyme 'Bertram Anderson' grows to a height of 10 cm and with its small green-gold leaves and mauve flowers, it is suitable for planting in the rock garden, herb garden or the front of a border. Thyme 'Bertram Anderson'  is also a very good container plant. Thyme 'Bertram Anderson'  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.

Herb Usage

Thyme 'Bertram Anderson' has a slight citrus tang, and is an excellent herb for flavouring stuffing 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.
