Surely this must be one of everyone's favourite herbs, with its narrow needle-like foliage, deliciously aromatic and reminiscent of many a good meal.  Bushy, upright and architectural, it is one of the first plants to flower in spring, its delicate pale blue blooms providing a valuable nectar food source for bees, with luck reflowering later in the year.

A definite 'must-have' for any herb or mediterranean themed garden, it is also very useful for adding structure and year round interest to a mixed border and works well as a hedge, clipped into shape after flowering.  Easy to grow and tolerant of salt air, it thrives in a poor, free draining soil in full sun.
