Grown locally in our Woburn Greenhouses, Uncle Mike's Lemon thyme is primarily grown as a culinary herb for its rich, lemon-scented leaves. Attracts bees, butterflies and birds.
Tiny, narrowly ovate, dark green leaves have a strong lemon scent which reaches its aromatic peak just before flowering. Leaves are frequently used fresh or dried (much better fresh) as a seasoning in a variety of culinary applications including salads, soups, stews, sauces, and meat or fish dishes. Fresh sprigs may be used as a garnish. Whorls of tiny, tubular, pale lilac flowers appear on the stem ends in early summer.
