Fresh Herb, English Thyme
Thymus vulgaris

Price: $12.49

Availability: IN STOCK


A highly aromatic Mediterranean herb, Thyme is a low growing, woody perennial that prefers a somewhat dry, sunny site. Thyme is used in flavorful dishes and complements garlic, cheese, eggs, and tomatoes as well as flavoring jellies, marinades, sauces, soups, and breads.  Thyme is also considered to have antiseptic and preservative properties; also used in temple incense, toiletries, antiseptics and fumigants.  It is also a symbol of courage.  Often intentionally grown between paver stones, footsteps will release its aroma; also useful at the edge of a walk, along a short garden wall, or even in a patio pot---and, of course, be sure to have some thyme in your herb garden! Pretty summer flowers attract pollinators, such as bees.

Harvesting: Use fresh, simply snip off a sprig with kitchen scissors.  Wash and dry; then, using your thumb & index finger, gently grab the tip of the stem and slide your fingers downward, releasing the leaves as you go.  For dried Thyme, snip off sprigs and air dry until leaf can easily be crushed.  Store in a cool cabinet.
