Description How to Grow More Info Delivery Reviews
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").

Culinary information: Some parts of these flowers are edible. Click here for more details about edible flowers.

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.
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.

Van Meuwen strives to ensure that all its plants are delivered to you in the perfect condition for planting. While the majority of our nursery plants cope well with slight delays in intransit, sadly, the time it takes to deliver to certain locations in the UK means that we can't guarantee this for some of our smaller plug products and tender bedding and vegetable lines, which do not respond well to the extra journey time. So regretfully while we offer the majority of our live plant offering nationwide, we are unable to ship plugs, begging plants and tender vegetable plants to the following areas: HS, IV41-IV49, IV51, IV55-56, KW15-KW17, PA34, PA41-48, PA60-PA78, PA80, PH40-PH44, TR21-TR24, ZE1-ZE3.
