Thyme 'Minor' (Thymus serpyllum 'Minor',syn Thymus minimus) 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 'Minor' as the name suggests this thyme has a very compact form reaching only a height of 5 cm and with its tiny densely packed green leaves and pink flowers, this tiny mound forming creeping thyme is suitable for planting in the rock garden, herb garden or the front of a border, or perhaps plant between pavers or at the edge of gravel paths as the aromatic leaves release a lovely scent when trodden on. Thyme 'Minor', 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 'Minor' s 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.
