Question on Thyme perennial or annual variety
Of all of the herbs that I grow, (both annual and perennial), this one seems to give me the most problem. I use thyme a lot for culinary purposes, in particular French onion soup. I have grown the regular one and it will re-grow after I use some of the leaves from cut branches, and then last a little bit longer, then it becomes woody and does not grow again. Is it possible that it is an annual? Any recommendations? I read online today that lemon thyme is a perennial, but my question is, how will or will it change the flavor in the cooking? I'm just getting tired of having to buy this plant over and over again.
