How to care for your Lemon Thyme | 8.5cm | Edible plant

Light and position

Lemon-thyme requires full sun and dry, well-draining soil with minimal nutrients. It has a compact nature making it suitable for edging paths or in the border around your other garden plants. This plant can also be grown indoors providing you can give it lots of bright light.


Lemon thyme prefers dry conditions and will only need watering once the soil is dry. This could be weekly or every few weeks. If planted in the ground, your lemon thyme will likely not require much watering once it's fully established.

Facts and stats

Lemon thyme is grown as a culinary herb and has a rich, citrusy aroma when rubbed. The leaves can be used raw in salads or dried and used in cooking and making herbal teas, and their flowers can also be used as a decorative garnish. Stems can be harvested all year round as needed and you can prune your lemon thyme once it's finished flowering to maintain its compact shape. Lemon thyme makes a wonderful, low-maintenance addition to a herb garden, rock garden, in the border as ground cover or as a container-grown plant.
