English Thyme Planting Instructions:
Plant your thyme seeds 1/4" deep and 9-10" apart. Give your plants full sun and well-draining soil. Thyme can take awhile to germinate, so don't give up. To get the plants through a cold winter, mulch them after the ground freezes with a light mulch such as pine needles. In the spring, trim the plants back to prevent them from growing too woody.

English Thyme Harvesting Instructions:
As needed, harvest sprigs of thyme throughout the season. You can use your thyme both fresh and dry. To dry and store thyme, harvest sprigs in the early fall. Tie the sprigs together and hang them upside down in a shaded, warm, and well-ventilated area. Once dried, store the thyme in a sealed container. Alternatively, remove the leaves from the stem, lay them to dry on a tray, or freeze them.
