Don't forget to include herbs in your planting design! They deliver a classic look, and you'll love having super fresh ingredients on hand to season your home cooking!
Our expertly grown English Thyme (Thymus vulgaris) brings a fine-textured look to the edge of your planting beds and spilling over the side of outdoor containers. While petite, the pointed, gray-green leaves have an important role to play.
Crush the leaves between your fingers for that wonderfully earthy, with notes that are both sweet and sharply spiced. Grow this timeless edible herb and harvest for Greek potatoes, chicken and lamb dishes, stews, roasted Brussels Sprouts and other hearty dishes.
Look closely at the attractive leaves to relish the range of variegated tones from silver to dark green. The foliage grows along the length of slender, woody stems.
Harvest what you need from your small mound of English Thyme throughout the season. In late summer, trim it back down to two inches from the ground.
Dry them upside down in bundles, or place each stem on a screen in an area with good air circulation. Strip the dried leaves and store in an air-tight jar, or freeze them.
Let your inner craftsperson come out to play! Extract your own homemade aromatherapy oil; or infuse vodka, honey or vinegar with fresh Thyme.
Gift homemade culinary Bouquet Garnis to your foodie friends. There aren't many plants as giving or easy to grow Thyme.
It's reputed to boost your immune system, so order plenty to tuck here and there in sunny parts of your landscape. You'll appreciate the charming mound of aromatic, healthy foliage.
So will honey bees and butterflies. The small purple flowers aren't terribly noticeable, but they certainly offer nectar for your local ecosystem.
No Victory Garden would be complete without herbs! They are easy enough for "newbies" to grow on their balcony or deck in wide containers with plenty of drainage holes.
