Organic Thyme Seeds 4085. Heirloom Herb. Approx. 1,500 seeds/pkt (2,800 seeds/gram)
Organic Thyme seeds produce a tasty herb that compliments poultry and strong-flavoured game dishes and is used extensively in stews, sauces and marinades. Thyme grows relatively slowly at first, but when established it grows with vigour! This variety of thyme is relatively low growing at 15-30cm (6-12in) in height. A fantastic plant for use in pollinator gardens as the flowers produce very high-quality nectar and pollen from which honey bees produce intensely fragrant and flavourful honey. Perennial hardy in Zones 4-9.

Sow seed outdoors in mid-to-late May then every two weeks through June, or start them inside and transplant after the danger of frost has passed. Thyme is a low maintenance plant and prolific once established – all you really need to do is provide water when necessary. Thrives in bright, hot, sunny gardens. Lightly feed with a general-purpose fertilizer as too much can adversely affect the production of the essential oils responsible for flavour and aroma. Thyme is primary grown for leaves. Harvest as sprigs — leaves and branches together.
