Teaser: There is no other herb that compliments as many roasted meat dishes as thyme.
Description:

Heirloom Herb

Common Thyme is sometimes known as English thyme. To our way of thinking, there is no other herb that compliments as many roasted meat dishes as thyme. It is also commonly used in egg, cheese or shell fish dishes. Common thyme is also an excellent grilling herb with zucchini squash, eggplant and mushrooms. Our thyme variety stays fairly low, growing just 15-30 cm (6-12") tall. Perennial hardy to Zone 5 when grown in quickly draining soil under full sun. Also treasured by honey bees and honey producers alike!

How To Grow 2800 seeds/gram Sow seed directly outdoors in a sunny site with average soil in mid to late May or again in mid-August through to mid-September. In spring, seed can also be started indoors on the surface of a soil-less mix 8-10 weeks before last frost date. Keep temperature at 21 C (70 F) for the 10-20 day germination period, then grow on under drier conditions at a slightly cooler temperature before hardening off and transplanting outside after the danger of frost has passed. Sow seed no more than 3 mm (1/8") deep and 2.5 cm (1") apart then thin the sprouts to 20 cm (8") apart in the garden.
