Softly mounding plants of cascading gray-green thyme leaves are a handsome accent in every cook’s garden. Intensely aromatic thyme is indispensable in all kinds of savory dishes throughout the classic Mediterranean cuisines of France, Italy and Greece and enhances both Cajun and Creole food. Use the spicy little leaves every day to combine and blend beautifully with the flavors of lemon, garlic, basil and parsley for seasoning vegetables, seafood and poultry. Thyme is easy to freeze or dry.
We’ve blended this mix of our favorite perfumed basils to grow together for heavenly scented ornamentals in the flower or herb garden and delicious herbal accents in the kitchen. Cinnamon basil’s heady perfume and shiny purple-veined leaves and Red Rubin’s rich garnet colored leaves and rosy flowers combine with heirloom Mrs. Burns‚ intense citrus basil scent to make up a marvelous trio.Their colors, forms and exotic fragrances will delight all your senses this season.

This perfumed Mediterranean herb is at its best when harvested fresh from the garden, with a complex, sweeter pungency than its more assertive cousin, oregano. Marjoram is easy to grow from seed and forms an attractive mound of small-leaved green sprigs. This versatile kitchen companion combines well with garlic, onions, thyme, basil, and bay leaves. It is the herb of choice for flavoring cheese and egg dishes, herb breads and stuffings, mushrooms, poultry or beans and adds bright flavor to a wide range of everyday cooking.
