Attractive leaves which makes it look eye-catching both indoors and outdoors, in or out of bloom. Golden Thyme is great for those who want to attract pollinators to the garden.
The most common variety, this herb is known for its woodsy, earthy taste with a subtle hint of lemon. For those who want to decorate their garden with a slightly taller Thyme which will bloom pink flowers in the summer months.
As the name suggests the leaves of this variety are bordered with a silver hue, great for adding a lighter colour to the garden. Can be added to teas or drinks for a sweet, citrusy and minty flavour.
Leaves that have a wonderful yellow colour and a very strong lemon scent and taste. For those who like to use citrus as a pairing with fish or to fill the home with a fresh, clean, citrus fragrance.
This variety is known for its deep vibrant pink flowers which cover the entirety of the plant. Perfect for filling gaps in the garden or to decorate stone walls or balconies where they can grow down over the edge.
