I planted a variety called German Winter thyme just over a month ago, on Feb 21. I am really pleased with how well its growing.
Its is nicely aromatic already. The leaf undersides are deep red and the tops are silvery/blue. I was interested to see the pores in the macro photos, which I can't see with my eyes.
Thyme is such a versatile herb. It goes with every food, I think. And I love the inevitable (and thymely) puns.
