English Thyme

Certified Organic Seed

Thymus vulgaris

Charming perennial herb for the kitchen garden.

Don't disrupt the space-thyme continuum: put thyme in your garden, and keep the seasoning universe intact. Thyme is a versatile and highly useful herb that weathers nearly all conditions. It can be harvested until buried in snow and then as soon as the snow melts in spring. Strip the leaves from the woody stems and sprinkle them in soups or on roasted root veggies--irresistible!

Start thyme indoors 8 weeks before last frost by seeding clusters of 10-15 seeds together on top of the soil. Keep moist, but not wet. Transplant outdoors when seedlings are 3" high, spaced at least 6" apart. (Thyme does not mind some crowding.) Harvest the upper green growth and prune back flowering stalks to promote more green growth.
