Lemon Thyme offers a less intense, citrus aroma and flavor that compliments salads, vegetable dishes, fish, shellfish, as well as chicken. It can be used in any recipes that call for lemon. Thyme grows best in full sun locations with well-drained soils. Plants should be sheared back after flowering to keep the foliage from getting woody. It can be grown indoors within a few feet of a east, south, or west facing window. If grown indoors, potting mix should slightly dry before watering.

Comment: Enjoying all of the mint in the new herb raised tier beds I built. Should help with summer Sarsaparilla drinks to celebrate any day of the week that ends in Y.

Comment: This was my first time growing Lemon Thyme and it is now my favorite herb. The scent is fabulous and it makes an amazing Pesto! The plant grew quickly and provided more than enough to get me through Winter. Going to make jelly with it this next season. Cannot go wrong.

Comment: Plant arrived quickly and nicely packed, but the post office put it on the porch upside down even though the box was clearly labeled "this side up" - not GrowJoy's fault... The plant is doing well though.
