Thyme produces attractive bushy plants with tiny grey-green leaves. Not only used to flavor most meat, fish, and vegetable dishes, this versatile herb can also be used as a plant for rock gardens and edging.Thyme is extremely aromatic and has a pleasant, pungent, clover flavor. 

PLANTING THYME:

Most gardeners will not grow thyme from seeds as the germination can be slow and uneven.

It's best to purchase the plant or use some cuttings from another thyme plant.

Plant the cuttings or seeds indoors 6-10 weeks before the last spring frost to get a head start.

2-3 weeks before the last spring frost, plant the seeds/cuttings in well drained soil about 9 inches apart.

Thyme plants should grow about 6-12 inches in height.

You can plant thyme alongside tomatoes and cabbage.

CARING FOR THYME PLANTS:

Water regularly and trim the plants regularly.

Prune the thyme plants in the spring and summer to contain growth.

To protect the plants during the winter, lightly mulch around the soil.

HARVESTING THYME:

You can harvest the sprigs and leaves in the summertime.

To dry the sprigs, hang them upside down in a dry, cool place such as a cellar.

So now that you know how to grow thyme, it's time to roll up your sleeves and get to planting!
