    Can anyone name this herb for me please. My plant label has lost its name and I have forgotten. I know the smell, just cannot put a name to it. The bees love it and I would like to plant more. The flowers are itty bitty little things. Help much appreciated.

    Hello teddy6, it looks like Oregano.

      Many thanks for your reply noisette47. I tried searching but could not find it in flower. Mind you I was searching for Marjoram! Thanks again, I can now but another or maybe two. The bees are loving it.

      It looks more like Thyme to me, an upright variety instead of the creeping one. However, the leaves are a bit narrow for Thyme. :scratch: Flowering herbs are bee magnets so I always allow about half of mine to flower and eat the rest. :)

        I think thyme as well. Rub the leaves and it should smell of thyme.
