Thymus vulgaris 'French'The narrow leaves of French Thyme are distinctly grayer and sweeter than English Thyme. One of the three major varieties of Thyme, French Thyme is sometimes referred to as 'Summer Thyme'. Essential in French cooking - no stew, soup or ragout is complete without this key culinary ingredient and it compliments meats, seafood, veggies and sauces well. French Thyme is also a basic herb in the savory seasoning satchel, Bouquet Garni, because it retains its flavor and scent during the cooking process.

Whether it's a "thank you" for the hostess with the “mostest”, or a corporate Christmas gift, these potted herbs make the perfect gift.
