Woolly Thyme (Thymus pseudolanuginosus)Herb in 9cm Pot 

Thymes are grown the world over as it is such a versatile plant.  It is drought tolerant - an overall easy-care plant. 

Woolly Thyme as the name suggests has hairy leaves and reaches a height of 5cm the grey-green woolly leaves form an evergreen mat so 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 as it has a natural trailing habit. Try planting between pavers so when walked on or brushed past it will release its scent. It will produce pink flowers in summer but it is the woolly leaves that are the reason for growing this variety.

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. 

Herb Usage

Woolly thyme is not really grown as a culinary variety but is an excellent herb for brightening up a herb garden as edging or as a feature plant, it is extensively used as a path thyme between flag stones and within turf. It is often found on rockeries as it is more decorative than culinary. Generally other varieties of Thyme were grown for their essential oils and have been used for many centuries medicinally to treat aches and pains and sprains.

    Delighted to receive my order so promptly, well packed, and such strong healthy plants. The scent of thyme was a delight as I opened the box. Fingers crossed they will forgive me for bringing them to the Far North West Highlands! No real fears, they look up for the challenge.

    Received a very well grown healthy plant with good root system, together with description and advice on how to care for this plant. I was very impressed with the plant and the great care with which it was safely and securely packaged en route. Will be buying from these Sellers again.
