Thyme, Foxley – Thymus pulegioides is one of our favourite varieties here at Norfolk Herbs. Not only useful in the kitchen but also highly decorative.

A culinary, broad-leaf Thyme with cream flecked variegated foliage. Stunning mauve flowers during the summer months that the bees and pollinators simply adore.

It is also an excellent Thyme for winter interest when the foliage takes on attractive tints of pink and bronze. Why not enjoy in a pot near the kitchen over winter months where it is easy to take some for adding to tasty winter dishes.
