Thyme herb plant growing green and lushBy maxmann CC0 1.0 (Photo Credits)
Botanical Name: Thymus vulgaris

Holds its strong savoury flavour well - add at beginning of cooking. Thyme is the perfect plant for garden edges when it can be walked on to scent pathways and simply harvested. Sore throats benefit from a thyme gargle which is strongly antiseptic.

No herb garden is complete without thyme. I love the pretty flowers and the tiny folliage and the gorgeous smell. Ahhh beautiful.

Thrives on neglect. Doesn't mind a good haircut (which doubles as harvest if you have space to dry it properly). Likes lots of sun and does not like wet feet.

Mine is in a bed with native violets and I have noticed that it doesn't like violets growing too close so I keep it all well back.
