Thyme Seeds

Our thyme seeds will provide you with an aromatic, flavorful herb grown for reasons beyond fragrance and cooking purposes.

The leaves of the herb thyme are used, fresh or dry, to season culinary blends added to stuffings, poultry dishes, soups, chowders and more. Like other herbs, thyme is known for its contribution to natural medicine as well — its oil is thought to aid in treatment of respiratory and inflammation issues, among other things.

Give thyme seeds some time because they can take up to 21 days to germinate. For best results, maintain even moisture in your soil and a minimum temperature of 70 Degrees Fahrenheit. Sow in an area that sees full sun.
