Plant between the patio stones, next to the front door, or on your kitchen windowsill, thyme is the herb that lives wherever it is loved. Clip the tiny leaves for recipes, or simply admire. Grow the savory leaves season for stews and sauces, or to add tang to a summer salad. Prefers full sun, let it creep and ramble into a mounded heap of soft greenery.
Plant Information
Thyme is an herb with a glorious history, once used in ancient rituals to give courage to men going off to war. Admired for centuries for its wonderful aroma and slight citrus flavor with a hint of mint, it's become an essential part of recipes for almost everything, from fish, poultry, and meat recipes to chowders, sauces, stuffing, and soups. Fresh Thyme has a pretty short storage life, so it's nice to have this useful herb growing right at home. Planted in the garden or a container indoors or out, it requires no watering once plants are established and its leaves can be clipped at any time for fresh use. It's also easy to dry and just as flavorful in this form, making it ideal for saving as a seasoning. Medicinally, Thyme has some great uses too, proving very helpful with soothing cold symptoms like sore throats and coughs.
