Garden Thyme (Thymus Vulgaris) 600 seeds (#1132)

It is a generally upright, woody-based perennial which is primarily grown as a culinary herb in herb gardens.
Numerous, somewhat woody stems grow upward to form a foliage mound. Stems are clothed with tiny, linear to elliptic, pointed, gray-green leaves which are distinctively revolute (leaf margins are rolled under).
Leaves are highly aromatic (reaching their peak just before plants flower) and are frequently used fresh or dried as a seasoning in a variety of culinary applications including soups, stews, sauces, meat and fish dishes. Whorls of tiny, tubular, lilac flowers appear on the stem ends in late spring to early summer. Flowers are attractive to bees.
Plants are evergreen in mild winters.
Easily grown in average, dry to medium, well-drained soil in full sun. Loose, sandy or rocky soils with excellent drainage are best. Drought tolerant. Dislikes wet soils where it tends to rot. Cut back plants to limit woody growth or to stimulate new growth. Harvest leaves throughout the summer as needed. Plants tend to become overly woody and loose after several years at which point replacement should be considered.

GERMINATION INSTRUCTIONS
Can be sown all year round inside. More light will be required in winter months.
1. Fill a garden planter with potting soil.
2. Scatter creeping thyme seeds across the surface of the planter, approximately 2 cm apart. Press lightly on the seeds to embed them slightly into the soil.
3. Water the seeds, trickling the water gently in the first waterings until seedlings develop so as not to wash away the seeds.
4. Keep container in full sun during early stages of growth. In hotter climates, move to partial shade. The best temperature for germination - 16-20C.
Once the plants have established themselves, continue watering when soil feels dry to the touch, being sure to let the container drain so the roots do not sit in water and rot. Thin out the seedlings so they are 10 inches apart to promote healthy growth.
