Heirloom. Common Thyme is sometimes known as English thyme. To our way of thinking, there is no other herb that compliments as many roasted meat dishes as thyme. It is also commonly used in egg, cheese or shellfish dishes. Common thyme is also an excellent grilling herb with zucchini squash, eggplant and mushrooms. Our thyme variety stays fairly low, growing just 15-30 cm (6-12″) tall. Also treasured by honey bees and honey producers alike!
