Thyme – German Winter – Thymus vulgaris
Soil & Water: Thyme can grow in most soils, but performs best in well-drained soil with moderate nutrients. Soil which is too rich will cause the plant to get leggy and lose its compact shape.
Planting & Growing: Start seeds indoors 6-8 weeks before the last frost. Lightly pinch developing plants to encourage bushiness. Sow seed directly 2-3 weeks before the last frost. Thyme also thrives as a potted plant.
Harvesting & Storage: Harvest leaves when the plant is large enough. Use fresh leaves, or dry and store leaves in an airtight container. Thyme also keeps well frozen.
