    Does anyone know what this plant is

    I have these growing in the herb garden but have no idea what they are or even if it is a herb.

    Looks to be lavender or blooming thyme to me. This is exactly what it looks like.

      Most likely thyme.

      I don't think it is lavendar, I took a better photo but of course I can't ad another photo.

    Thyme is a possibility but I don't think it's lavender, at least not the ones I know.  Can't think of anything else but then I'm not a connoisseur of plants!

    It's hard to tell from the angle if the flowers are spired . The leaf looks a little like catmint (nepeta) although I can't see the detail. Does it have a scent?

      The flowers are clustered rather than spired. I know the bees love it if that is any indication smile)

    It looks like oregano (or wild marjoram, latin name Origanum vulgare) - the leaves are wrong for lavender or thyme. Crush some leaves in your hand and smell them, it should have a sweet herby Italian seasoning type of scent. It is a very good herb for tomato sauces and pizzas.

      I think that marjoram may be correct! smile

    Looks like oregano to me. Check this for what you think. http://www.bhg.com/gardening/plant-dict … b/oregano/
    Your picture isn't quite close enough.
    This is a very easy plant dictionary, it might help you in the future. I use it all the time.

      Thank you Becky I have bookmarked that site for future use, but unless you have some idea of what it might be it would be a hard search.

    Thank you so much everyone, I googled an image of  Origanum vulgare and that is it definitely.  Now I know I can start using it.
    Thank you  everyone for your help especially Imogen and Becky

      Well, now we all know so that's taught us all something.  Good question and great answer finally!

      Glad I could help. Wish you could send me a snipping. I have some basil I would send you. I have a little herb garden in a big pot outside my back door. It is dormant right now though.
