Growing Instructions:
To establish Thyme from seeds, sow the herb seeds indoors on sterile starting mix 6 - 8 weeks before last frost. Keep the Thyme seeds moist until germination. Once frost season has passed transplant the Thyme seedlings into the garden in a sunny location. Do not over water Thyme. It likes to dry out in-between waterings. Thyme herb plants dislike wet foliage, so surrounding the plant with a layer of gravel can help this. This variety of Thyme is often planted near vegetables to help control flea beetles and several cabbage pests.
