All about Thyme and how amazing it is!

I love herbs!

I use them in cooking, in remedies, in potions for the bath and skin, I love infusing them in oil and drying them for winter, I have a cracking collection now which has been easy to build up over the past few years. My favourite is always Thyme, this grows year round even when it’s snowing and doesn’t need drying out to store, it’s also very hardy, can last for days without watering even in hot weather, grows well in shade and poor soil too although I like to put my coffee grounds on the soil for an extra boost and comes in all different types, I have lemon thyme ( which hasn’t grown as abundantly as I would like) and English Thyme.
