Lemon Thyme. Within the thyme family, Lemon thyme is one of the most useful for culinary purposes … The very distinct citrus scent and savor blend nicely in many dishes - both veggies and meats (For the meats…we like to use Lemon Thyme on chicken and fish – though it is said to make excellent sauce for meatballs – will have to try)


Because of its ornamental shape and interest, Lemon Thyme can also be planted in a rock gardens or as edging, or as a low lying border.   Is a suitable container plain as well.   


*2018 available Plants - Check “Harvest Update” for current availability.


USE and STORAGE:

As you harvest, the more it will bush out and produce! (HINT: instead of pinching a leaf at a time, try pinching the stem, ¼ inch from the next set of leaf nodes. This encourages the plant to bush out more) Flavor intensifies after flowering.

 

Thyme may be used:

1. immediately after harvest,

2. Set in a flower vase in a well lit room. Change water every so often.

3. Lemon Thyme may be dried for multi-purposes later in the winter months
