Growing 'Doone Valley' Thyme

Thyme does well in pots in a poor, open mix with plenty of sand, grit and bark. Trim your plants after flowering to encourage more foliage and to stop them becoming leggy.

Keep watering to a minimum for established plants. They do not like wet winters.

In Your Garden

The young yellow foliage of this rambling thyme gives it a charming mottled effect. If you plant it in cracks or spaces among paving, then a nudge with the foot will release its lemony aroma. It can creep over low rambling walls alongside steps in a truly rewarding way. In summer, it produces small round-headed, lavender-pink flowers which start off in red buds. For culinary use, keep in a pot near your kitchen with other herbs and let it trail over the edges.
