Silver queen thyme
Thymus x citriodorus 'Silver Queen'
This is is lovely bushy thyme with a hint of lemon smell and flavour. The pretty pinky lilac flowers in early summer will be great for pollinators, they also taste and look fab on salad and pasta dishes.
Thyme also has medicinal uses and can be used in tea for digestion and even hangovers. Sweeten the tea with honey and drink at the start of a sore throat to keep infection at bay.
Place your pot a sunny situation. Trim back flowers after they have finished and brush away clippings.
A big and bushy single herb plant in a 19cm Italian terracotta pot. Planted in a peat reduced compost mix with added perlite for extra drainage.
