Not a particularly common herb, which looks a bit like thyme, and perhaps is somewhat underrated.

Winter Savoury is a perennial plant which looks like thyme, though it's flavour is a bit different.

It has a prostrate form, so you can grow it in a herb garden or at the front of a border, or in a rock garden. It is a low plant, and it also covers well, so you can use it as a ground-cover plant.

In cooking, Winter Savoury can be used in salads, though sparingly, as it has quite a strong flavour.

You can also use it when cooking pulses - a lot of Italian dishes use it - but should be used at the start of the cooking process.

It's very good when used in stuffing, infusing with oil and with any lamb dishes.

A not very common and quite underrated herb, which apparently is very good for flatulence......
