Thyme has been used since ancient times for its culinary, aromatic and medicinal properties. The ancient Egyptians used it as an embalming agent to preserve their deceased pharaohs. A delicate looking herb with a penetrating fragrance, thyme is a wonderful addition to bean, egg and vegetable dishes. It thrives in hot conditions, loves full-sun, and doesn’t need constant watering or attention.
All herbs come in 15cm diameter plastic pot in random colours.
