Welcome to the Thymus Website

I hold National Plant Collections® of Thymus (Scientific Status), Hyssopus and Satureja and am International Cultivar Registration Authority for Thymus (ICRA).  Brickell Award 2011 for Excellence in Cultivated Plant Conservation.  To view Press Release click Press Release .

In this website I would like to share my love of thyme with other gardeners who grow thyme and want to know more about it.  Included are articles and pictures about thyme in the wild and growing thyme in the garden, as well as Thyme Portraits.  There are also articles on nomenclature and the DNA studies, for botanists and nurserymen and for gardeners who would like to know why names have been changed.

LW Plants is a back-garden nursery; plants from a plantsman's garden.
