Water and Sun Needs: Thyme needs full sun! Allow soil to dry out in between waterings.
Average Size: Under 12 inches tall, 18 inches wide.
Plant Type: Perennial, Herb
Special Features: It goes without saying that the best part of this plant is that it’s edible! It also smells incredible and does extremely well in containers.
How to Get Started: Start as a seed, indoors in early Spring (now would be a great time!) As soon as the last frost passes, transplant your sprouts in the sunniest patch of your garden. This plant blooms twice yearly, once in spring, and once in fall. Spring buds should be trimmed, fall buds should be left to provide plants with winter protection.
When to Harvest: This should be ready to harvest in mid-summer.
