Frygana [or Phrygana] is a type of low, soft-leaved bush and plant community that grows mostly in the Mediterranean regions, and especially the coastlines, where the climate is warmer and drier and the soil poorer in nutrients. The Greek islands provide the ideal climate and soil for this kind of vegetation, that grows in great numbers there. 

 

Frygana is often composed of herbs such as thyme and wild thyme, lavender and wild lavender, rosemary, oregano and sage. It can be used either as cooking herbs and spices, raw material for the production of aromatic oils, ornamental plants, or - as in our case - the main flora source for the production of bee honey.
