Grow Thyme in a Pot

Contain Thyme

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.

In the front cherry tomatoes enabling air circulation and allowing to pick the inner tomatoes.
