Summer thyme

Just love those ground cover thymes - excellent for full sun and little-to-no care... And for pots!

That's a great pic Luzy! LOVE the pots :D and the thyme looks fantastic trailing over them

I put in 4 thymes this year after reading forumites comments on them and they are growing amazingly.

Do you "trim" the thyme at all to keep it in check or does it just grow to a certain point??

Thank you, everyone! :D That green grass is our patch of kikuyu - isn't kikuyu always green in summer? It's also trying to grow into the pots via the drainage holes, cheeky stuff!

Lin, the pots are just terracotta and were chosen for their kind of 'white washed' look. But what a good idea to render planter boxes...

Spider Lily, I don't really bother to trim the thyme unless it's going somewhere it shouldn't, though I do try to give it a trim after flowering (it can be a bit fiddly deadheading something that height!)

Pam, if you think I am being too sexist, she could ask Basil.
