Thyme, Silver

The plants like well-drained soil in full sunlight. They need a cold period to develop properly. Spicy Italian Thyme has rounded, grey/green foliage with lilac coloured flowers in summer. It prefers well drained soil in an open sunny position. Suitable for a neutral to slightly alkaline soil and will grow happily in a rock garden. Thyme does not like wet feet. In the garden thyme grows well as a companion to cabbage, onions, roses and salad burnet.

It is an essential ingredient of the herb mix 'bouquet garni'. It retains its flavour well in long slow cooking. An aromatic tea is made from the fresh or dried leaves.
