Thymus pulegioides 'Foxley'
A spectacular, decorative all-rounder culinary thyme. The broad leaves look attractive creeping over the edges of their pot with pretty cream coloured variegation. Use this aromatic thyme in your favourite Mediterranean dishes and in teas to soothe sore throats.
Keep in a sunny position and don’t over water. Small spikes of pinkish flowers will develop in late spring. Trim back after flowering, and in the autumn if your plant is looking straggly.
All herbs are planted in a peat reduced compost mix with added perlite for extra drainage.
Choose whether you receive your herb planted up in an Italian terracotta pot, with a matching saucer - or if you already have a pot in mind, keep it in its nursery pot.
Dry and free draining.
Harvest the tips frequently to keep your thyme plant bushy. Cut back hard after flowering in summer to prevent elongated woody growth.
