Organic Thyme, German Winter

Short Leaf Varietal

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.

Perfect for the nooks in my rock wall

I planted a bunch of these in the crevices of the rock wall that borders one of my garden beds. I was pleasantly surprised by how well it came up, and how quickly it filled out! Bought more this year to fill in other spots in my garden borders.
