"...started. ***************** There are numerous varieties of thyme including the wild Thyme I love to see in Provence and lemon Thyme. I grow the common Varity known as Thymus Vulgaris. Thyme is really easy to grow and requires very little looking after. I bought my Thyme in pots from a local nursery but it can easily be grown from seed. Thyme does best in a sunny warm spot with well drained soil. It is a native of the Mediterranean where it grows ..." Read review

Make Time For Thyme

AdvantagesVery forgiving and easy to grow, attracts bees, hardy, great for cooking, lots of varieties

DisadvantagesJust for once I really can't think of any

"...have three different varieties of thyme growing in the garden, each has it's own distinct scent, taste and look, but all three are wonderful plants. There are literally hundreds of varieties of thyme available, from the vulgar (or common) thyme to the far more unusual pine thyme.

AdvantagesA wonderfully adaptable herb that's easy to grow and looks lovely (to humans and bees!)

DisadvantagesNone at all!!!

My herb collection at the moment consists of about 3 small potted rosemary plants which ..." Read review

Thyme for Tea

AdvantagesA beautiful and versatile plant with both culinary and medicinal uses.

Disadvantagesnone

Thyme to grow this herb

Advantageseasy to grow , many choices of variety

Disadvantagesnone

"Thyme is another great addition to the herb garden. Thymus vulgaris can in fact be grown just about anywhere that is not waterlogged ,and has full sun. Light , well drained soil is best though , slighly on the alkaline side . Thyme is a perennial and there are an absolute multitude of types and varieties to choose from. Here a few of my personal favourites. T - citriodorous " Archers Gold " has lovely pale green leaves which are attractive in ..." Read review
