Thyme Doone Valley is a variegated cultivar of lemon thyme, and its glossy dark green leaves are dotted with shades of creamy gold. In summer, the plant is crowned with clusters of small light purple flowers. Like other varieties of lemon thyme, Doone Valley is highly aromatic, with a citrussy scent that spreads through the garden when the plant is brushed past.
Thyme is a popular culinary herb with plenty of uses in the kitchen. It is often used to flavour casseroles, stews, savoury preserves, and stuffings. It also complements fish and chicken dishes and is a great addition to a bouquet-garni. Thyme Doone Valley is ideal for making herbal teas and has decongestant properties to help boost health.
This is a low-maintenance sub shrub that is simple to care for. Once established, the plant is drought tolerant, so it only needs to be watered during long dry periods. It prefers light, well-draining soil and doesn’t cope well with waterlogging.
Thyme Doone Valley is an excellent choice for any herb garden, growing well in beds, borders, and containers. However, it is also well suited to growing in rockeries and gravel gardens.
