Lemon Thyme (Thymus 'Culinary Lemon') Herb in 9cm Pot

Thymes are grown the world over as it is such a versatile plant, and 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.

Lemon Thyme has small green leaves and pink flowers, it is suitable for planting in the rock garden, herb garden or the front of a border. Lemon Thyme or Thyme 'Culinary Lemon' is also a very good container plant. Lemon 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

Lemon Thyme has a strong citrus tang, and 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.

    I was very surprised to see how quickly the plants were delivered. The plants themselves seem to be in good health. I will buy more plants from Hooks Green.
