Thyme Common [65570]

Thyme Common

Thymus vulgaris

Once just a French cooking essential but Thyme is now a must for a wide variety of dishes - casseroles vegetables soups stuffings and sauces. The Thyme plant is an extremely aromatic, woody perennial shrub. Stems are lined with tiny grey-ish leaves and topped with equally tiny pale white/pink flowers. Avoid watering the leaves and try surrounding the plant with bark or stones to help keep the leaves off the ground as Thyme dislikes wet foliage.
