Charm is a highly aromatic plant. The fragrance varies from lemon to orange. It is deliciously fresh in taste and provides a distinctive touch to your dishes. Charm flowers in the 2nd year, though the plants will have already grown substantially in the fi rst year. Grows well in pots. Leaves and branches can be stewed along with meat dishes and heavy vegetables. When dried, thyme retains its strong aroma. Prefers a sunny, dry and calcareous spot.
