Description

Softly mounding plants of cascading gray-green thyme leaves are a handsome accent in every cook's garden. Intensely aromatic thyme is indispensable in all kinds of savory dishes throughout the classic Mediterranean cuisines of France, Italy and Greece and enhances both Cajun and Creole food. Use the spicy little leaves everyday to combine and blend beautifully with the flavors of lemon, garlic, basil and parsley for seasoning vegetables, seafood and poultry. Thyme is easy to freeze or dry.

While Renee's Garden seeds are not all certified organic, they do not sell treated or GMO seeds and have signed the "Safe Seed Pledge.”

Planting & Care

Planting: To Start in the Garden: Plant thyme after soil has warmed up in spring in a finely textured seedbed with good drainage in full sun. Sow very thinly, cover seed lightly and be careful to keep the seedbed evenly moist and well weeded while seedlings are young. To Plant Indoors: Sow thyme in early spring in a container of seed starting mix. Cover seeds very lightly and keep evenly moist, but not soggy, until seedlings emerge in 14 - 21 days. Provide a good light source. Transplant when seedlings are about 2" tall after gradually acclimating to outdoor conditions.

Growing: Given a sunny location with good drainage, easy-growing thyme plants are reliable, productive and long-lived garden perennials. Little lilac flowers bloom in midsummer; cut back foliage halfway when the blossoms fade to keep plants looking fresh. Cut leafy thyme sprigs as needed once plants are well-established.
