A pleasant and versatile herb, Thyme is common in a wide variety of recipes and pairs exceptionally well with poultry and fish. It is also often used in savory baked good like biscuits and flatbreads, giving them a subtle and well-balanced flavor.

Thyme can also be used in smoke smudging, in a similar fashion to sage, due to its anti-bacterial and cleansing qualities. Making a strong thyme tea, or consuming a thyme tincture can help to fight respiratory infections, colds and the flu.

How to Grow Thyme in Your GardenSoxx®

As a plant that is quite resilient to drought, thyme should be planted in very well-draining soil and is even well-suited for gravel gardens. Planting thyme from seed can require patience as it can take about a year for the plant to be established enough to produce a harvest. We recommend seedlings, planted about 12 inches apart.

Thyme Seed to Harvest Time: Thyme seeds take approximately 30 days to germinate and the plant can take about a year to produce a harvest

How to Harvest Thyme

Harvest the outer stalks of the plant, cutting them at the base about 1 inch up from the soil. While thyme can produce a harvest all year long, the leaves will be most flavorful during the summer.
