Product Description

Thyme is a very fragrant, small-leafed & woody-stemmed herb. It is frequently used in Mediterranean, Italian and Provençal French recipes. It is ideal with lamb, poultry and tomatoes, and is perfect used in soups, stews, stocks and sauces.

Serving Suggestion
Lemon and Thyme Marinade - Mix together olive oil, the zest of a lemon, 2 chopped garlic cloves, a handful of chopped fresh parsley and a handful of thyme leaves. Pour over chicken breast, cover and leave to infuse for at least 6 hours in the refrigerator.

Product Information





Growing herbs are 'cut as you need', harvest just above leaf growth to encourage the plant to re-grow.

Watering the herbs from the bottom is the key to keeping them healthy and to prolonging their life. Your herbs have always been watered from below so by keeping to this regime you will extend the life of the plant.

Remove the herb pots from their sleeves and place the pots on a saucer. By placing water at the bottom of the tray you can always see how much water your plants have taken up.  As most herbs originate from hot countries they like to be kept on the dry side. The more heat and light they are exposed to, the more frequently they will need watering. Generally water little and often and never keep your plant in standing water.


1. Pick leaves as required.
2. Wash before use.
3. Tear or chop.
4. Add at the end of cooking for maximum flavour.

Died within 2 weeks

Unfortunately this herb did not last like the other growing herbs which I've had a lot of success with.

Great value, excellent quality

Cheaper than the garden centres these herb plants are top quality and generous in size. They arrive well packaged.

really good idea

Trimmed the soft growth to eat, nice to have the young leaves and stems so melt in the mouth! also ideal to cut back a quickly grown plant to cope with planting, which I did immediately and although it still looked leggy and upset out of its supports in the june warmth, it recovered well keeping it hydrated. Stems have toughened up already and it is growing. Nice to have a handy plant again, all round great value.
