THYME Lemon Pulegioides – 50 Seeds
Lemon thyme (Thyme Pulegioides) is great for savoury meat dishes and marinades, also a long flowering ornamental garden plant. Larger than most ground-covering types, it forms a 30 cm mound and flowers well in summer, even in dry conditions. Ideal for mass planting amongst stones with paeonies and crocus. Pink flowers.
This variety is a broad-leaved type. This is also a bushy type with mauve –
pink flowers and large round leaves, which are strongly flavoured. Fresh leaves and flowers can be picked as required.
The leaves are bursting with flavour and used in stews, soups, sauces, dressings, and flavour meats. If the leaves are to be dried, the plants should be harvested in early and late summer just before the flowers open, and the leaves should be dried quickly.
The leaves, especially the essential oil in them, are antiseptic, deodorant, disinfectant, and expectorant. The plant can be used fresh at any time of the year, or it can be harvested as it comes into flower and either be distilled for the oil or dried for later use
Propagation notes will be supplied with a seed packet.
