Thyme - Vulgaris - Thymus vulgaris

Hardy Perennial. A short, compact, aromatic herb, thyme is a classic in any garden. It forms attractive, tiny lavender flowers which attract bees, and is known to deter cabbage worms. Thyme adds interest to soups, casseroles, pizzas, and breads, and also has many medicinal uses.

Soil & Water: Thyme can grow in most soils, but performs best in well-drained soil with moderate nutrients. Soil which is too rich will cause the plant to get leggy and lose its compact shape.

Planting & Growing: Start seeds indoors 6-8 weeks before the last frost. Lightly pinch developing plants to encourage bushiness. Sow seed directly 2-3 weeks before the last frost. Thyme also thrives as a potted plant.

Harvesting & Storage: Harvest leaves when the plant is large enough. Use fresh leaves, or dry and store leaves in an airtight container. Thyme also keeps well frozen.
