If you are looking for two exceptional aromatic herbs, what better choice of lavender and thyme?
Lavender is the only one of the genus Lavandulea, and is an aromatic herb with a shrubby habit. It is particularly appreciated for the scent of flowers, used as decoration but also in herbal medicine and for some culinary recipes. Lavender is among the most recognizable aromatic herbs, due to its cluster of purple flowers that stands out on the long stems and the unmistakable scent that they give off, which also acts as a natural repellent for mosquitoes.
Lavender (in this case in the Lavandula Stoechas variety) adapts to many soils but it grows better if the substrate is calcareous and enriched with compost or organic matter.
Lavender watering must be regular but not excessive, avoiding stagnation as in most aromatic herbs, and being very careful not to wet the delicate flowers.
The Thyme is an essence used since ancient times for primarily medicinal purposes, in particular as a natural antibiotic to deal with all respiratory infections. There are hundreds of varieties of the Thyme: in this composition is the classic thyme vulgaris with very minute dark green leaves, which create a delicate shrub that in this composition with tin vase stands out particularly. It belongs to the same family of lavender and is used in a very wide way also in the kitchen, to harmonize the taste of meat and fish or even to prepare excellent liqueurs. It is a very resistant aromatic herb that suffers a minimal temperature change: the important thing is to place it in a very bright area. The ideal soil for the thyme is mixed and rich in organic substance. it should let the plant breathe a lot. It does not require excessive irrigation, which could cause mold and attract insects.
The vase is in gray tin with refined knurling, a raffia bow and a jute upper lace that wraps around the vase and has two handles.
