I ordered three plants of foxley thyme and the are all in excellent condition. I like the way they are in their own plastic pots, and as delivery was prompt they didn't have chance to dry out. The thyme is full of flavour and easy to use as it's the broad leaf variety. I will certainly use Hooks Green Nurseries again and recommend them highly.

Being a native of the Mediterranean it needs a place in full sun.
