Thyme 'English'

English thyme is an essential culinary spice for roast, tomato sauce, bean soup, and poultry seasoning. This evergreen perennial grows a compact, small-leaf bush with light pink flowers. The flowers attract beneficial insects, such as hover flies and small bees. Harvest thyme right before it blooms for best flavor.


English thyme is also know as Garden thyme and Common thyme. The plant is drought tolerant and deer resistant. Multiple thyme plants can be planted near each other to make a low hedge. Hardy to zones 5–10.


Height 12 inches. Spacing 12 inches.


Sowing English Thyme Seeds:


Sow seeds indoors on the surface 6 weeks before the last frost date, 1/8 inch deep. Or sow outside a week after the last frost date. Space 12 inches apart. Full sun to part shade.
