Thyme is one of the best-known and most widely used herbs, grown as a culinary plant and also used as an alpine plant in rock gardens, patios, as an alternative to lawns and even path edging.

Thymus vulgaris ‘Silver Queen’ has a bushy dwarf, spreading evergreen habitat, which lends itself well to growing as path edging as well as in cracks in patios, where it may be crushed underfoot to release its beautiful scent. It has small, dark green variegated leaves and bears clusters of tiny pink flowers in summer.

Thyme plants thrive in hot sunshine and drought, so grow them in a sheltered spot in full sun and free-draining soil.
