Simon Weir, of Turfcroft Farm, grows most of our herbs, in a small farm in the New Forest. He has been growing herbs for nearly 30 years now, and has always shied away from using chemicals and pesticides. However, since there was little interest in organic herbs until recently, it was only a few years ago that he applied for organic certification; he just sold his herbs as conventional produce. Recent interest in organic growing means Simon has changed few of his growing techniques, but they have finally been given the appreciation they deserve!
Lemon thyme is a very tasty companion for garlic, and basil, and also makes an attractive salad garnish. Use a little chopped thyme to enhance the flavour of tomatoes, onions, carrots, cucumbers, aubergine, parsnips, leeks, spinach, corn, peas, cheese, or eggs. Keep wrapped up in a plastic bag, in your fridge. This will retain moisture and keep it fresh for you
