    Clear pink summer flowers and fragrant grey-green, hairy leaves. This compact scented thyme is ideal for planting in a sunny part of the garden in the crevices between paving stones. It thrives in the alkaline soil conditions commonly found between stones, releasing a lovely scent whenever it is trodden on.

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