Lemon Thyme as its name suggests, is lemon-scented! With a milder flavour than common thyme, its bright green leaves are broader in shape than the common variety. Like common thyme Lemon Thyme has many, many culinary and medicinal uses - possibly more so than common thyme!

The Greeks first named thyme, from a word meaning 'to fumigate', either because they used it as incense, or else because they say it as emblematic of all sweet-smelling herbs. Pliny tells us that, when burnt, thyme puts to flight all venomous creatures, and its antiseptic properties were recognised very early. Sir Francis Bacon recommended that thyme be set in alleys, "to perfume the air most delightfully ... being trodden upon and crushed".

Recommended by the RHS to be an excellent attractant and nectar source for bees and other beneficial insects.
