Thyme is a perennial plant, meaning it lasts more than one season.
Soil should be dry & lean (sandy soil works too).
Soil pH 6-8 provides optimum growth.
Needs full sunlight
Grows best in warm, dry conditions.
Grows well in containers.
Fertilize once per year.
Growing from Seeds:
Sow thinly and cover with a light sprinkle of compost or soil.
Soil should be moist, but not soaked.
Grows slowly from seed, so give yourself some time before desired harvest!
Growing from Seedlings:
Do not over water.
Plants will spread quickly.
For best results, allow your plant to grow the first year with minimal pruning (I did not follow this rule and was absolutely fine, but have been recommended this tip twice from other gardeners).
Strip off leaves or snip sprigs when needed.
Prune larger sprigs to keep them from getting woody, especially in early spring.
**Thyme pretty much grows itself!**
