This classic culinary classic is a simple addition to your culinary garden. It is easy to grow, great for use in all types of culinary dishes, and makes a pretty cascading plant from a planter.


Sow directly into the garden 1/4 inch deep once all danger of frost has passed into well-drained soil in full sun. Once established, this perennial herb is low-maintenance, making it perfect for both novice and experienced gardeners. To harvest, simply snip off the top few inches of the plant, being careful not to cut into old, woody growth. English thyme adds a savory flavor to a wide variety of dishes, from roasted meats and vegetables to soups and stews.
