Thyme is a surprisingly versatile herb, with many different variations of colour, texture and taste. This great value collection will allow you to experiment with the different combinations of flavour. You will receive 5 plants, 1 each of the following varieties:
Thyme Archers Gold - A lemon scented herb with lovely gold foliage, and attractive pink flowers that are a magnet for bees in the summer. Perfect for use in culinary dishes, particularly chicken and fish recipes.
Thyme Doone Valley - Ground covering, with attractive green and gold variegated leaves with a lemon scent and lavender flowers in summer. Goes well with many meats and fish and to flavour soup, stocks and casseroles.
Thyme Faustinoi - One of the most flavourful of all the thyme varieties. Noticeably sweeter and spicier than English types and is the preferred variety used in authentic French cuisine. Dainty, pale pink flowers are an added bonus.
Thyme Foxley - An excellent flavour for cooking, the leaves are softer than many thymes and easier to chop. With a bushy habit and distinctive cream flecked foliage and mauve flowers this is an excellent ornamental variety too.
Thyme Silver Queen - Pretty silver marbled leaves with a rich thyme scent and flavour with a hint of lemon making it one of the best varieties to use in the kitchen. With tiny pink flowers in summer, this is a perfect variety for pots and path edges.
