Thymus vulgaris

Thyme is native to the Mediterranean. Its foliage is attractive, the long-lasting flowers are very pretty & it is a compact easy-care plant. On top of that, it is one of the most useful herbs for the kitchen. Thyme has been grown & used in cooking and medicine for thousands of years. The ancient Egyptians used thyme when embalming their dead pharaohs, as it is a powerful preservative & the ancient Greeks used to burn thyme in their sacred rituals because of its aromatic smell. Even today, a major element that is found in thyme is used to make Listerine as well as Vicks Vaporub.

Sow your seeds & cover them with a light sprinkling of soil. The best spot for growing thyme is in a very sunny area, with light or even slightly sandy soil. Thyme might be a good option for patches of poor soil where little else will grow. Sow in Spring or after the last frost for your area.
