Botanical Name: Thymus x citriodorus

Lemon thyme is a perennial plant with glossy green diamond shaped leaves and pale lilac-pink flowers in spring /summer. It has a very definite lemon smell and flavour along with the herby flavour of regular thyme.

The leaves can be used in any recipe calling for lemon juice or lemon zest or lemon flavoring. While you can use it in any recipes where thyme is included, it flavours chicken, fish and vegetable dishes superbly. Use in stuffing, soups and sprinkle over baked vegetables. Nice stirred through cooked mushrooms and omelettes or sprinkled on sardines.

Thymes antiseptic and anti-bacterial properties make it useful as a herbal tea to help relieve colds (throat and chest), bronchitis, coughs, asthma, laryngitis and tonsillitis. Many pharmaceutical gargles, cough drops, mouth washes, and vapour rubs contain thymes constituent thymol. Thymol destroys bacteria and fungus. Use externally for fungal infections, bites, aches and pains.

The dried leaves can be added to herb pillows and potpourris.

In the garden thyme grows well as a companion to cabbage, onions, roses and salad burnet.

Growing Conditions

Lemon thyme prefers well drained soil in an open sunny position. Suitable for a neutral to slightly alkaline soil and will grow happily in a rock garden. Thyme does not like wet feet and will grow well in a container on a sunny windowsill or veranda.

Great healthy plants

I bought 4 different types of plants. Overall great experience: received notification once "out of stock" item was available, easy purchase, good timely communication regarding receiving and planting the herbs. It only took a day by express post to Metropolitan Sydney and the plants arrived in excellent condition. I was not able to plant them until several days later, but all 4 are thriving well now. Would be happy to order again from the Mudbrick Herb Cottage.

Great quality!

I bought a bunch of plants from Herb Cottage and they all were carefully hand packaged and survived the trip from QLD to NSW. All plants have been planted in pots and are doing very well. The Lemon Thyme in particular is flourishing with a lot of leaves :) Will be buying from them again!

Quality products and great service

This was my third online purchase from Herb Cottage. I am totally satisfied with the quality of their products and their very prompt delivery interstate. My previous purchase was during floods in South East Qld and they emailed me to advise that the delivery would be delayed due to the herbs being waterlogged and starved of sunlight. A week later (after another email advising of dispatch), perfect products arrived. I thoroughly recommend this company!
