Growing & using Coconut Thyme

Coconut Thyme In Bloom

This floriferous mass is about two feet in diameter less than one year after planting only two three inch pots. Coconut Thyme does not smell or taste like coconut, but it sure blooms well and grows fast. It is nice planted in swaths in front of [Caraway Thyme](organic-plants/thymus-herba-barona-caraway-thyme/) because both are heavy bloomers but bloom at different times. Make sure to give Caraway Thyme a lot of room or it will take over the Coconut Thyme**.
