Shipping Information & Notes

Growing Information

Thyme

DAYS TO GERMINATION: 14-21 days.

SOWING: Transplant (recommended): Start seeds in flats 8-10 weeks before the last frost. Sow seeds on top of the growing medium and cover with a thin layer of soil mix. Keep moist until germination. Transplant to individual containers when plants have 4 true leaves. After the last frost in spring, transplant outside and space 6-8" apart, in rows at least 1' apart. Pinch off growing tips of upright growing varieties to make bushier plants.

LIGHT PREFERENCE: Sun/Part Shade. In very hot climates, thyme will need part shade to do well.

SOIL REQUIREMENTS:
Thyme does best in light, dry, well-drained soil.

PLANT HEIGHT: 6-12".

PLANT SPACING: 6-8".

HARDINESS ZONES: Varies.

HARVEST: Cut only a few leaves the first year in order for the plants to winter over. In subsequent years, harvest just as the flowers being to open. Cut back to within 4-5" above the ground.

Note: Thyme will become woody and needs to be divided or replaced after 3-4 years.
