Thyme herb seed by Mr. Fothergill’s. Classic strongly-flavoured herb. A wonderful unique flavour, ideal with meat, fish and eggs.
Useful Information: Suitable for contained gardens; Herb garden
Sow and Grow: Sow indoors February-May. A warm kitchen windowsill is all you need for starting these seeds. Sow thinly, 0.5 cm (1/4-inch) deep, in small pots of compost. Water well and place in a warm position. A temperature of 15-20 degree C (60-68 degree F) is ideal. Keep moist. Seedlings usually appear in 14-28 days. Transplant seedlings individually to 8 cm (3-inch) pots, when large enough to handle. Grow on in cooler, but not cold conditions. Gradually accustom plants to outside conditions (avoid frosts), before planting out, 25 cm (10-inch) apart, May-July, into warm, well-drained soil. Give cloche protection in autumn to allow picking into winter. Harvest: March-November. Pick the fresh leaves and tender shoots as required. Thyme can also be dried and stores well. Cut off the flowering shoots to retain the best flavour.
Hints and Tips: A main ingredient of ‘Bouquet Garni.’ To continue picking year round, one or two plants can be transferred to the windowsill.
