Urban Bounty Pizza Thyme is the perfect ground cover or border plant. It looks bright and green all year round, does a great job suppressing weeds and tastes great in your Italian dishes!    

To get started, we recommend that you plant more than one Pizza Thyme plant, so we sell them as a set of 8, as well as individually. We also sell Pizza Thyme plants as part of our ground cover mixes. Plants come in 9.5 cm pots.  

What is Pizza Thyme? 

Pizza Thyme is an evergreen, low growing herb.  Its leaves are darker green, larger and glossier than regular creeping thyme.  It is ideal for almost any style of garden from elegant, cottage, coastal and Mediterranean spaces to potted apartment gardens.  Try it as a lawn substitute, ground cover, or between stepping stones.  It will help keep the weeds under control and has lovely pink flowers that attract helpful pollinating bees to your garden.

Culinary Uses for Pizza Thyme

The flavour of Pizza Thyme is like thyme with a hint of oregano.  Like its name suggests, the leaves can be used as a garnish on pizzas or in pizza sauce.  The leaves and blossoms can be used in teas, as part of a bouquet garni, with sautéed mushrooms and balsamic, or paired with roasted stone fruit in a dessert.

Growing conditions - Pizza Thyme 

Easy-care Thyme loves full sun and is happy in most free-draining soils (even poor ones!) Once established, it will tolerate a light frost, drought or the wind. It grows to about 10 cm high, but does spread, so plant it with room between seedlings, and in a space where this doesn't matter. 

Plant Pizza Thyme from early spring through to the end of summer.  Companion plant cabbage, tomatoes or aubergine nearby. 

Shipping Information

We use an overnight courier and specially designed packaging so that your plants arrive in the best condition possible.  See our postage table for shipping information.

We offer a replacement guarantee

To give you peace of mind, we offer a replacement guarantee if your plants do not arrive in good condition.  If there is a problem please let us know as soon as you receive your package and we will work with you to resolve it.

What will postage cost?

Postage varies by region, and by parcel size/weight. 

Customers are asked to choose the correct postage option at checkout (urban or rural). 

If you order a worm farm or garden bed and plants in the same order, the postage for the worm farm will be added to the postage for the other items.  (These items are dispatched from separate locations.) 

If you live in the South Island, Waiheke or Great Barrier Island, please contact us for a custom shipping quote: 

How often do you dispatch?

To reduce the risk of plants sitting in a courier depot over weekends, we usually ship orders on a Monday, Tuesday or Thursday (except public holidays).   

How do you package your products?

We take extra care to water plants well and drain them before sending.  Plants are shipped in specially designed packaging, designed to reduce the risk of damage in transit. Trees and bushes are securely wrapped in paper to reduce risk of soil escaping during transit.  They are well supported with scrunched up paper to prevent movement during transit.  


Where do you deliver to? 

We deliver to most locations in the North Island - you can order and make payment via our website, Facebook or Instagram stores.  

South Island, Waiheke and Great Barrier

While we deliver to the South Island, we ask customers in these locations to email us for a quote:  Shipping to the South Island can be expensive and is extremely variable by location - we like to avoid nasty shocks at checkout! 

We don’t generally ship to Waiheke, Great Barrier except by special arrangement. (Delivery can be expensive, and we want to ensure that our live plants arrive in good condition.)  If items are small and non-perishable (such as seeds) delivery may be possible.  Contact us to discuss options:

Do you deliver to post office boxes?

Unfortunately live products like plants, garden beds and worm farms can't be delivered to Post Office Boxes. Large items (like garden furniture) are delivered to the nearest freight depot for customer pickup if outside of Auckland.
