About the Thyme 'Family': Thyme is a member of the Lamiaceae family. They are very useful herbs with many culinary uses as well as being used medicinally and looking great as well. The widespread of Thyme throughout Europe is thought to be due to the Romans who used the scent to purify buildings and flavour cheeses and liqueurs. Thyme can be used both fresh or dried with fresh leaves able to be frozen to retain their flavour and dried Thyme retaining its flavour much better than most herbs. Thyme is very commonly used as part of a Bouquet Garni and as a component of Herbes de Provence. The leaves are often used to add flavour to stews, salads, roasts, and fish dishes. The plants themselves usually have long, thin, and very fragrant leaves which are usually a rich green but can vary depending on the variety.

Pot sizes explained

At Newlands Nursery we grow and sell plants in a variety of different sizes, from small starter plants up to planted containers. 

We know it can be tricky to picture the size of each plant. This page gives you an idea of the size of the plants we are sending out.

Please keep in mind that plants vary from one season to the next. The size of the plant refers to the pot or plug it is grown in, rather than the height of the plant, unless specifically mentioned on the plant page.

Starter Plant (Plug Plant)

Plug Size: 2cm by 4cm. Our most popular size. This is often the most economical way of buying plants and is a great way to get a head start on the season. Generally this size is best to be potted up before planting out.
