Thyme Foxley is a low growing, highly aromatic herb garden staple. Its small green leaves are irregularly variegated with cream tints. In early summer it grows tiny pink flowers which are highly attractive to bees.


An old favourite for stews, stuffing, and in mixed herbs and bouquet garni, Thyme stimulates the appetite and helps the digestion of fatty foods. It is a helpful companion plant, as it is a great deterrent of cabbage root-fly or cabbage worm; grow the herb close to cabbages, cauliflower, broccoli and brussels sprouts.
