SPEARMINT (Mentha spicata)
The characteristic mint scent and possibly the most suitable for culinary purposes.
WHITE HOREHOUND (Marrubium vulgare)
A herb with old medicinal uses; in particular it used to be noted for its efficacy in lung troubles and coughs among others.
THE THYME COLLECTION
This is another large family of herbs. Most of them are decorative and grown simply for their beauty and because they spread out well and make good ground cover plants.
THYMUS ALBUS COMPACTUS
A bushy thyme with fine green fragrant foliage and white flowers.
THYME ANDERSON’S GOLD
A dwarf carpeting variety. It is aromatic and has bright golden foliage even through winter.
THYME ANNIE HALL
Very low growing with pretty flowers.
Another very low growing plant with small leaves and flowers.
Quite a bushy thyme which spreads exceedingly well but which is easy to control.
COMMON THYME (Thymus vulgaris)
This is the culinary thyme, another of the classic herbs. It is an essential ingredient in bouquet garni.
CREEPING WHITE THYME
CARAWAY SCENTED THYME (Thyme herba barona)
THYME DOONE VALLEY
This is a creeping thyme with pale purple flowers and lemon scented bright green leaves with gold splashes.
ENGLISH WILD THYME (Thymus serpyllum)
A creeping prostrate hardy perennial with a delightful aroma. It has white or rosy purple flowers and is ideal for rockeries or paving.
GOLDEN THYME (Thymus aureus)
This bright golden form of thyme makes a scented mound.
GOLDEN LEMON THYME (Thymus citriodorus aureus)
Bushy and strongly aromatic. The gold leaves contrast well other dark leaved species.
THYME LEMON CURD (Thymus serpyllum citriodorus)
This is also a creeping thyme. It has pink flowers, long wiry branches and narrow, sweet lemon scented green leaves.
LEMON THYME (Thymus citriodorus)
This is also used in the kitchen. It has a lemon scent and a milder flavour than Common Thyme and as such is very good with foods with a delicate flavour, it is sometimes used as an addition to a ‘fines herbes’ blend.
