Perennial. An invaluable seasoning in the
kitchen, thyme has a subtle,
woodsy flavor that complements
a variety of foods. A staple herb
of chefs and one of the primary
ingredients of “bouquet garni”.
With very small leaves and
delicate, edible flowers, this
thyme also makes a lovely 12”
tall landscape plant; use as a
low hedge around your herb or
vegetable garden. An excellent
container plant to enjoy indoors
or out. Perennial in USDA zones 5 and warmer.
Days to Emerge:
When to sow outside: 1 to 2 weeks after average last frost and when temperatures are warm.
When to start inside: 8 weeks before average last frost.
Harvesting: Pick sprigs as you need them. Shear the whole plant 4" above ground if growth is spindly; new growth will be denser. Do not cut into the woody part or prune heavily in fall; it may adversely affect winter hardiness.
