Description

Thyme can be tricky to grow well, but this white-flowered variety excelled in our trial for flowering and growing happily away, even with quite heavy harvesting. It’s now been with us in the same pots for 3 years.

Care Tips

Thyme is pretty drought-tolerant, but new plants will need extra care so they do not dry out.
