Thyme is an easy herb to grow; all thymes need full sun and dry, light, well-draining soil. If grown in too rich soil, the plant tends to grow excessively and makes the plant susceptible to disease and winterkill. Keep thymes well cut back in the growing season so that they do not get too woody. Once the plant develops an open center, either divide the plant or replace. If growing in a humid area, watch for fungus. They do not like "wet feet"! Thyme does grow well indoors on a sunny windowsill.
Thyme is a major culinary herb and has a wonderful aroma. You can use thyme in a multitude of dishes, either fresh or dried. Harvest the leafy tops and flower clusters.
