Description How to Grow More Info Delivery
A useful culinary herb that can be used in a multitude of dishes, including stews and stuffings. Common Thyme is a tough and resilient hardy perennial which needs very little maintenance and copes admirably in almost any conditions, even tricky coastal gardens. The aromatic foliage can be harvested and used fresh when required or dried for use later on. Ideal for the herb garden, the front of perennial borders or nestled in the rockery. Height: 20cm (8"). Spread: 45cm (18").

Flowering Months
Feed and water herb plants regularly until they are fully established. Once established, thyme is reasonably drought tolerant and requires little attention. After flowering, cut back thyme plants to maintain compact bushy growth.
Pot up plug plants and grow them on in warm, frost free conditions until plants are well grown and all risk of frost has passed. Gradually acclimatise Thyme to outdoor conditions over 7-10 days before planting out in in neutral to alkaline, well drained soil, in full sun.
