English Thyme is the traditional variety of this commonly used culinary herb. English Thyme, a basic in herb gardening, has small evergreen, gray-green leaves and blooms white/pale purple in the summer. It is a robust grower, making it a good ground-cover in the garden.
Also known as “Garden” or “German” Thyme, English Thyme is popular for its use in bouquet garnis and as an ingredient in the French mixture of herbs, Fines Herbes. A great compliment to lamb, beef, eggs, infused in honey and more, English Thyme was believed to have come to America in the fleece of Greek sheep.
