Thyme 'Lime '(Thymus 'Culinary Lime' 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.

Lime Thyme or Thymus 'Culinary Lime' reaches a height of 30 cm and with its small green leaves and pink flowers, 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. Lime 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. Being a native of the Mediterranean it needs a place in full sun.

Herb Usage

Lime Thyme has a strong citrus tang, and is an excellent herb for flavouring stuffings 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.
