Buy thyme - Minor thyme 'Minor' / (syn Thymus Minimus): Neat, creeping habit ideal for an alpine trough.

  • Position: full sun
  • Soil: well-drained neutral to alkaline soil
  • Rate of growth: average to fast
  • Flowering period: June and July
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

  • Garden care: After flowering cut back hard using garden shears to retain a neat compact shape. Lift and divide large clumps in early spring
