    The aromatic mid-green leaves of this bushy thyme release a lovely lemon scent whenever they are rubbed, while also producing a colourful display of lilac flowers in summer. It's a spectacular container plant, or it can be used to line a sunny border - just make sure it is not planted too far away from the kitchen!

  • Garden care: Cut back hard in early to mid-spring to retain a neat compact shape. Lift and divide large clumps in early spring.
