Traditional flavor of Old English Thyme with a refreshing orange-mint fragrance and pale pink flowers that attract bees.
When used in cooking, the clear orange flavor lingers without the harsh aftertaste of other thymes. Excellent with fish, roasted vegetables, stews and soups. Grows short & compact to 4” tall & 12” across. Useful for edging, around paving stones, also nice in containers. Cut it back if it gets shabby, it re-grows quickly.
Orange Thyme began slowly. Just as it began to look as if it felt at home, the odd summer weather in South New Jersey kicked in. The plants are holding their own at this time, in early September. There is enough promise here for me to order more seeds for the next garden. I do recommend Orange Thyme, but then, thyme is a favorite here!
