Description

Thyme - German Winter - Thymus vulgaris

Hardy Perennial Short, compact, aromatic herb. This winter hardy variety has attractive tiny lavender flowers. Thyme is known to deter cabbage worms. It's aromatic leaves are used in sauces, soups, and stews. It is great seasoning for poultry and fish, and adds just the right amount of zest to salads.

Did You Know? Thyme has been used medicinally for centuries to treat certain parasites and a broad range of respiratory ailments.

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.
