Cultivation and Care of the Lemon Thyme Plant:

The lemon thyme does not have great demands for particular soil: it is sufficient that it is dry and well drained because it suffers from the stagnant water. Being an aromatic plant, it loves a good exposure to the sun even if it can withstand the half-shade. It tolerates the wind well as it grows in an almost creeping position and is therefore unlikely to be disturbed by drafts. Irrigation should not be abundant and the soil should be dry before irrigating again.
