thyme - this is the second year I have had it now, its bigger than the ones I bought this year which have flowered but yet again this year, no flowers from this thyme!! I only grow them for the smell and for the bees as I don't cook, so im a bit fed up with it! looks healthy and is in the same area as the others. im confused! I cant seem to find anything online about them refusing to flower. any one have any idea?



Odd. the only reason I can think of why it isn't flowering is that it isn't getting enough sun

Well, its a south facing garden, but on east side, so gets full sun from about 1:30 ish
Not sure about rich soil. The leaf structure looks slightly different to my other ones. It says its a 'compact' thyme. Will take a pic tomorrow. It must normally flower as the label has the 'good for pollinators' bee logo. Thats why it caught my eye!

You aren't feeding it at all are you? That might make a difference.
