Thymus pulegioides 'Bertram Anderson'

Plant details

Holder of the Royal Horticultural Society's prestigious Award of Garden Merit (AGM), Thymus pulegioides 'Bertram Anderson' is a decorative thyme, forming neat spreading mounds of golden leaves. It's particularly suitable for using as path edging and can be planted en masse to make an alternative fragrant lawn. Although closely related to lemon thyme, Thymus pulegioides 'Bertram Anderson' does not have a strong citrus fragrance of its parent, but it is edible and useful as a source of a mild thyme flavour in cooking.

For best results grow in well-drained soil in full sun, ideally in a container with other sun-loving herbs. Deadhead spent blooms and move indoors in autumn to overwinter.
