Thymus vulgaris. A versatile herb for cooking and medicine, it addresses ailments like rheumatism and insomnia with blood-purifying and flu-fighting benefits. Whether fresh or dried, it adds flavor to dishes and is commonly used in teas for colds and respiratory issues.
Minimum 100 seeds per packet
Start seeds indoors 8-10 weeks before last frost. Surface sow seeds; they require light to germinate. After the last frost in spring, transplant outside and space 6-12" apart. Space plants 6-12" apart. Seeds germinate in 14-21 days. As a non-hardy perennial, protect it from freezing in autumn (I mulch heavily and overwinter in my cold frames).
