Q.Edible Herb

Anonymous added on March 13, 2014 | Answered

Last year I planted an herb called “Highland Creme” Thymus. It came up again this year. I’m wondering if this is just a floral herb or is it also edible. Please tell me how it is used, if it is. It is planted in a raised bed with peonies, mums and chamomile right now, but I can move it. Thank you so much for any advice.

All thymes are edible, though the creeping varieties like this one are more often used as ornamental plantings in rock gardens, border edgings or creeping in-between flagstone pavers.
