Description More Information
Great fresh or dried, this indispensable kitchen herb is a very hardy perennial shrub that grows up to 15” tall. The whole plant (leaves, stems and flowering tops) of Common Thyme is used to flavor a wide variety of dishes.

Aids sore throats and coughs. Can also be used as an aromatic, ornamental landscape herb. Drought tolerant. Average: 85 days

Detailed planting instructions:

Thyme thrives in full sun and light well-drained soil. Space plants 9 inches apart. Be patient, thyme takes a while to germinate.

Where winters are very cold, mulch the plants after the ground freezes with a light mulch such as pine needles. Trim the plants a bit in the spring and summer to maintain a neat growth habit and prevent the development of too much woody growth.


You can harvest leaves and sprigs all summer. To dry thyme for storage, harvest sprigs in early fall, tie them together, and hang them upside down in a shady, warm, well-ventilated area to dry. Store leaves in a tightly lidded container. You can also remove leaves from the stem, dry them on a tray, or freeze them.


Division is the best way to propagate thyme plants. In mid spring, dig up thyme plants and clear dirt away from roots. Divide your thyme plant into three or four sections; making sure each section has roots and foliage. Replant each section 10" to 12" apart.

Best Place to Buy August 26, 2014
Reviewer: Brie from Jacksonville, FL United States  
I have bought many things from My Patriot Supply and EVERY time they have my order out within 24 hours. I always get my package quickly and never have problems. The package arrives in great condition as well as the seeds I've ordered. I have grown many of them (turned out awesome!) and will continue to buy from this company. I haven't come across a quicker, more efficient, and higher quality place to buy from!

Arrived sealed in foil or plastic bag which is then sealed inside a larger, well marked aluminum plastic lined zip lock and sealed envelope. Each envelope provides specific instruction for planting. My Patriot Supply has taken the non GHMO seed pledge. Thumbs up for My Patriot Supply!
