Common Thyme (Thymus vulgaris) 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. On top of that it is one of the most useful herbs for the kitchen.

Common Thyme reaches a height of 30 cm (12in) and with its small green leaves through the summer it is covered in masses of tiny mauve blooms, which butterflies and bees love.  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.

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

Common 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.
