Thyme is such a versatile herb in the kitchen that everybody should have fresh Thyme available at all times.
Have you considered combining different Thyme varieties with you favourite ornamental? We suggest you combine the following into a large bowl (min. 30cm wide) to ensure ample space for all the plants to grow to their full potential:
In the center:
- Ivy Geranium for its beautiful flowers and all season colour,
- It also has the same sun and water requirements as Thyme, therefore they will happily grow together in the same bowl.
On the side:
- Common Thyme
- Lemon Thyme,
- Silver Thyme,
- French Thyme
These are the best culinary thyme varieties that you can use to flavour many different dishes.
Place your Thyme bowl in a position where it gets at least 4 hours direct sun.

I have increased my variety of tomato plants.
Apart from the Heinz Khaki and cherry tomatoes growing well, I planted Roma Oxheart and Floradade.
Butternut lettuce finds a spot between the tomatoes for shade as the latter's grow taller. This area is fortunately shaded from later harsh afternoon sun.
Variegated oreganum on the right is another useful insect deterring herb. It is such a pretty addition to the vegetable patch and is delicious enhancing your chicken and vegetable dishes.
