Thymus vulgaris 'French'
Characteristics: Narrow leaves are grayer and sweeter than English Thyme. Essential in French cooking.
Light: Thyme is a Mediterranean herb—it will flourish in dry, sunny conditions.
Water: Thyme has average water needs. Water regularly but be careful not to overwater.
Soil: Thyme likes dry, lean, well-drained soil. Thyme is susceptible to root rot and fungus if exposed to constant moisture. Like most herbs, it's a good idea to thoroughly let thyme dry out before you give it a deep watering.
Use: A fragrant culinary herb, thyme is a lovely addition to shellfish, egg dishes, vegetables, and soups.
