Can anyone identify this herb please?

I bought a herb in Glastonbury a few weeks ago. It was an unusual one which I'd read about, and it had been on my wish list for quite a while. I was so pleased to find it! Planted it out. And now .... can't find any trace of the name anywhere in my, updated, files. I thought it was called something like english coriander but that doesn't seem to exist.
It smells like a cross between thyme and tansy, though other people may think of something different.
Here is the picture: can anyone help me please?

Get your magnifying glass out, Tony - the leaves are serrated.

So they are, I didn't notice the ones close to the ground.

Your eyes must be back to normal(ish) then Mike.
Mine on the other hand must be getting worse. :iconbiggrin:

Normal if I close my right eye. Otherwise I still have floaty spots.

I've got used to them.
