How to Plant and Grow Thyme
Plant Thyme Seeds: Sow thyme seeds in cell packs or flats, press into soil but do not cover. Needs light to germinate. At 70° F., germination is in 14-21 days. Transplant thyme seedlings into the garden, 6-12 in. apart.
Grow Thyme: Full sun or part shade, and well-drained soil. Needs little summer water once established. One tbs. of dried thyme leaves, or 2 tbs. of fresh thyme, steeped 5 minutes in 8 oz. of hot water makes an excellent tea. Strain and add honey to taste.
