Wild Thyme can be planted in a flower pot

Thymus serpyllum makes a great pot plant. Just brush your hand over the leaves and a lovely aroma is released. Plant thyme in a decorative pot or planter and it will look very appealing in a nice spot on the patio table. A shallow pot is also ideal for this creeping plant. Thyme is indispensable in the herb garden but looks just as beautiful in the rock garden, grown between the patio slabs or along the edge of the flower border.


Thymus serpyllum does not tolerated soil that is too wet. This fragrant plant grows best in a sunny area with well-drained, relatively dry soil. The evergreen thyme can suffer from frost. Cut off any unpleasant-looking twigs throughout the year.


You can use the leaves as a culinary herb. The taste of thyme is perfect for meat, stews and in Mediterranean cuisine. Thymus serpyllum is also known as creeping thyme.
