  • Thyme grows in a unique 'creeping' manner, appearing as a small ball of mess. Do not be alarmed, that is just the way it grows! The older it gets, the messier it grows.
  • You can start harvesting thyme approximately one month after planting. Gently trim off the tips of the plant leaving at least two pairs of true leaves to grow.
  • Thyme is great for drying and this way you can save it for later.

Fun facts!

  • Did you know that there are over 350 species of Thyme?
  • And that it was used for the process of mummification in Ancient Egypt?
