Our Master Gardeners Suggest Pairing With:
The scent and flavor of thyme makes it an essential part of recipes for almost everything--fish, chowders, sauces, stuffings, soups, meats and poultry.

It's an herb with a glorious history, used in ancient rituals to give courage to men going off to war. A Roman favorite, it was introduced to most of Europe by their early conquests.

As a culinary flavoring, it's famous for adding great taste to lamb, but is used for almost any meat. Today, thyme is widely used in European and Middle Eastern cooking, so it is an essential herb for any gourmet cook.

When and Where to Plant: Select sunny location with well-drained soil and sow seed after last frost. Cultivate soil and enrich with vegetable food. For earlier harvest, start seeds indoors. Firm soil over seed.
Care: Keep clipped to encourage bushy growth. Do not water.
Harvesting: Pick leaves as need to use fresh. For drying, cut stems back at time of flowering and dry in dark, ventilated place.

    Comments about American Meadows Thyme Seeds:

    I bought this seed in bulk and spread over a considerable bare patch in my yard. It came up beautifully in rocky, clay soil that gets blasted all day with the sun. It spread quickly, and has crowded out most of the grass and weeds. It's attractive, and smells marvelous when walked on! One final note - it survived our severe drought this year with no watering, while everything else withered away.

    It never grew past a seedling. If it grew at all it didn't grow past maturity.
