Thyme is a winter hardy perennial that prefers full sun and average, well-drained soil.
Start seed indoors in spring and transplant outdoors once the danger of frost has passed. Seeds can also be direct sown outdoors in spring. Sow seeds 2-4" apart on the soil surface and press lightly to settle. Seeds germinate best when soil temps are 70-80°F. Seeds will sprout in 21-28 days. Thin seedlings so that mature plants are 12-20″ apart.
Harvest above ground parts, by snipping, anytime during the growing season. Thyme is used fresh or dried in many dishes and medicinally in tinctures, salves, etc.
