Lemon ThymeLemon Thyme looks and has the same growth habit as English Thyme - but that is where the similarity ends. Lemon Thyme smells and tastes just like lemons. In fact you can use it in any recipe that calls for lemon juice or zest.  It is considered by many gardeners to be one of the best year round herbs and is often used in knot gardens.   Lemon Thyme remains beautiful all year long here in zone 6 and is often referred to as 'winter thyme'.  Plants are semi-creeping with a partially upright habit and are covered with tiny lavender-pink flowers in June and July. Plants can be a little pushy and may need to be trimmed back to keep them within their bounds.

Plants do best in full sun but will tolerate light shade. The most important thing to remember when growing Thyme is to make sure they are planted in a soil that drains well.  Plants will quickly die if grown in soggy soils.  When setting out new plants be careful not to over water - let the soil dry out between waterings.  Thyme prefers a light, sandy soil so amend just enough to improve the soils structure and drainage.  Feed in the spring with a combination of blood and bone meal. Liquid feed in summer with fish emulsion or compost tea.
