English Thyme Welcome one of the easiest, longest-lived, and most rewarding herbs of all into your garden! English Thyme is a mainstay of any self-respecting herb garden, A pest repellent, it's a natural way to keep the veggies and flowering plants looking good. Low-growing and dense, it fills in empty spots in the border nicely. Compact, it fits on the kitchen windowsill without constant pinching. It even makes a fine decorative (and fragrant!) edging for any sunny spot! If allowed to go to flower, it is a marvelous bee attractant, but if you want to use the foliage in cooking, pinch off the buds as soon as you see them, because the flavor deteriorates when the plant blooms. Thyme is a very pretty flowering plant, however, so we recommend that you also plant a stand of spreading, magnificently flowering Mother of Thyme in the garden to satisfy the bees as well as your own desire for blooms!

Lime Thyme Lime Thyme, a perennial, has citrus overtones but is not overwhelmingly lime-scented. It does not work well as a culinary herb. Rather, the bright emerald color of the foliage is reminiscent of summer limes. This, coupled with its low, even growth habit, makes it a gorgeous ground cover. It works well in combination planters, with other herbs or flowers, and also with thymes of different colors. In the summer, Lime Thyme bears pink flowers.
