White-Flowered Creeping Thyme (Thymus serpyllum var. 'albus') 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.

White-Flowered Creeping Thyme reaches a height of 5 cm and flowers in May and June it is very decorative with its small green aromatic leaves which are evergreen given the right conditions, this 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. White-Flowered Creeping Thyme likes a well-drained light soil, which 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

White-Flowered Creeping Thyme 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.  It has also been used for many centuries medicinally and its essential oils have been used to treat aches and pains and sprains.
