The above order has just arrived. All the plants are in very good condition-Thank you. I have, over the years, become used to plants arriving badly damaged from other suppliers, generally because they were not packed properly-these were packed very well. Again thank you.

To the Greeks Thyme denoted graceful elegance and they would use the thyme oil during massages. The word 'Thyme' in fact came from the Greek word thymon meaning 'courage' and has since been used with many soldiers.
