Thyme (thymus vulgaris)

An old favourite. Easy to grow with a strong flavour, best used in meat and vegetable dishes. Use fresh or dried.

Indoor Planting:

Sow seeds 0.5cm deep in trays or pots of moist compost, be careful not to over-water. Cover with polythene and store in a warm place at an approx. temperature of 13-16 degrees C (56-60 degrees F). Remove the polythene once germination starts.

Growing On:

When the seedlings are strong enough to handle they can be transplanted into bigger pots or trays. Do not overcrowd the plants and keep in a warm, light position. Once all chance of frost has passed the plants can be transplanted direct into your desired location in May. Harden off first.

Outdoor Planting:

Sow seeds 1.5cm deep direct in growing bed. Keep the soil moist, and be careful not to over-water. Thyme prefers a sunny location. Pick the leaves as required.
