Herb Thyme organic

Herb Thyme organic is an attractive plant for the herb garden with upright stems of tiny, grey-green leaves and small pink flowers that attract bees and beneficial insects. Thyme leaves are an important ingredient in many dishes, including poultry stuffing and fresh tomato salsa. Cut small branches, rinse under running water, then strip the leaves off the stem. Medicinally, thyme tea has been used for coughs as a mild decongestant for centuries.

  • Plant out when large enough to handle 6in between plants in full sun to part shade in well-drained soil.
