Difference in Thyme Varieties

We have lovingly grown six varieties of Thyme in our Sussex glasshouse to provide you with the best herb for your kitchen garden. But what are the main differences between each plant? Read on to find your perfect match! 

Silver Thyme

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. 


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. 

Lemon Thyme

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.

Creeping Red Thyme

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.

Variegated Lemon Thyme

Very similar to the Lemon Thyme variety but slightly brighter and more colourful. Able to withstand sunnier spots in a garden, window sill or balcony. 

Golden Thyme

Attractive leaves which makes it look eye-catching both indoors and outdoors, in or out of bloom. Great for those who want to attract pollinators to the garden.
