Notes on thyme - Silver Posie

"The daintiest thyme of all - with tiny silver and white leaves on wiry stalks and pale-pink flowers - too good for the herb garden alone"

Lovely plant!


This plant has become my favourite of the herb garden. It's foliage is lovely, it smells delicious, and it gets a lot of use in the kitchen. I've got an anxiety disorder and this plant helps with that. If I feel nervous, playing with it's wispy foliage and giving it a sniff tends to relax me.

Please advise me whether pot grown thyme is in a peat base compost or a soil based pot.


Hello there On the Nursery we use a reduced peat compost, but we are very keen to eventually be peat free. We have been running trials trying to find good alternatives to peat, but this is ongoing. Unfortunately we cannot guarantee that this Thymus will be in a peat free compost as although we do grow a lot of plants on the Nursery, we also buy in from other suppliers who may use peat in the mix. Sorry we can't be more help this time
