Description How to Grow Delivery
This traditional herb is a firm favourite in the kitchen, adding a distinctive flavour to any dish, from stew to stuffing. Thyme 'Old English' is popular in the garden, too, for the hardy perennial offers low, evergreen groundcover, even in dry and windy coastal areas. Thymus vulgaris also features on the RHS 'Perfect for Pollinators' list, for its small, pink flowers will attract bees and butterflies galore. Height: 30cm (1'). Spread: 35cm (1'2").

Sowing Months Flowering Months
  • Place seed on the surface of a good seed compost, cover with a fine sprinkling of compost or vermiculite.
  • Seal container inside a polythene bag and keep at 15-20°C (59-68F) until after germination, which takes 18-24 days. Do not exclude daylight as this helps germination. Keep compost on the dry side at all times.
  • Transplant seedlings, when large enough to handle, into trays or 7.5cm (3in) pots. Grow on in cooler conditions for a few days before planting out after all risk of frost, 25cm (10in) apart.
  • Thyme leaves can be harvested all year round.
