Bonnie Lemon Thyme 2-pack
Overview & Benefits
If you love the fabulous fragrance and flavor lemons lend to your favorite dishes, try growing lemon thyme as a convenient alternative to the fruit. Easy to grow, it’s ideal for any recipe that calls for lemons, including roasts, marinades, soups, veggies, and even desserts.
Lemon thyme’s glossy, green foliage looks like traditional winter thyme but smells like a lemon grove! Evergreen in zones 8 and 9, the vigorous herb can be shaped to create a small hedge for use in a traditional knot garden. A Mediterranean native, lemon thyme grows best in well-drained, fairly dry soil in full sun or partial shade. Try growing it in a container if drainage is an issue in garden beds. Perennial in zones 7 to 9.
