Herb Thyme Organic

English thyme is an attractive plant for the herb garden with upright stems of tiny, gray-green leaves and small pink flowers that attract bees and beneficial insects.  Thyme leaves are an important ingredient in many dishes, including poultry stuffing and fresh tomato salsa. Cut small branches, rinse under running water, then strip the leaves off the stem.  Medicinally, thyme tea has been used for coughs as a mild decongestant for centuries

Cultivation advice Herb Thyme Organic

  • Sow sparingly indoors from 8 weeks before the last frost date.
  • Barely cover the seeds.
  • Plant out when large enough to handle 6in between plants in full sun to part shade in well-drained soil.
  • Leaves can be harvested for fresh use throughout the summer, but the flavor is best just before flowering.
  • To dry, cut the stems just as the flowers start to open and hang in small bunches.
  • Harvest sparingly the first year.
