Arbor Gate's Picks
of the Month

Lemon Thyme

December 8, 2016 Back to Picks >


The darling of thymes; a beautiful dark green, upright, lemon-scented variety that is superb in the kitchen. The upright variety can make great mounds in just a couple of years, and performs best when pruned lightly and frequently. Being an upright variety, it rarely will cross-pollinates, remaining true.

Performs best in well drained soils with ample sunshine. Should be weeded regularly until well established to keep tidy.
