Thyme Herb Plant Varieties

Thymus

Probably the widest selection of any of the herbs that we grow - we hope we haven't given you too many to choose from, but Thyme appeals to so many and there are so many lovely varieties. Although an evergreen, hardy perennial, this is yet another herb that doesn’t like to stand with its feet getting wet, requiring a free draining, sunny site and benefiting from a trim after flowering to prevent it from becoming woody.

Thyme tends to grow either as a very flat, creeping form, as a rounded mound or in a more upright form which means there’s one to suit most needs, can provide excellent ground cover and is very attractive in pots. Despite being a small leaved and generally low growing plant you really could spend a long time deciding which one is right for you! Many have variegated leaves, some are lemon scented and flowers range from white, through hues of pinks and purples to red.

Whilst most can be used in cooking, the Common and Broadleaved varieties tend to be the most popular for their strong, traditional taste where Thyme is essential, the lemony ones combine well with fish and I would steer clear of the Woolly one although it’s lovely in the garden.
