Perennial | 90 days to harvest | Thymus vulgaris
HEIRLOOM Deliciously resilient, thyme is a low-growing perennial thriving in containers and alongside garden beds. Her petite and aromatic leaves are delicious fresh all summer as well as dried to enjoy all winter long. Once established, thyme will surround you with abundance for many years if not generations to come! For millennia, thyme has been revered for her antiseptic, antibiotic and antifungal properties, as well.
At Fruition, we sow thyme indoors in mini-soil blocks on heat mats six weeks before final frost, transplanting out after final frost.
