Good to know!

If you don’t have any lemon thyme in your garden or on your terrace, I would advise you to sow some. This type of thyme is not only frequently used in recipes, but it is also a lovely tiny plant that grows easily in a pot as well as in the ground. The blooming period goes from May to October and the sprigs are available all year round. Its taste enhances all sorts of dishes and is a great source of vitamins and minerals.
