If you grow your thyme in a container, feel free to leave it outside and let it enter a dormant state over winter. .

Planting, Growing, and Harvesting Thyme

Thyme is a wonderful herb with a pleasant, pungent, clover flavor.There are both fragrant ornamental types as well as culinary thyme varieties which add a savory note to summer soups, grilled meats, and vegetables.Originally from the Mediterranean area, this herb is drought-friendly so it doesn’t have high watering needs. .

How to Keep Supermarket Herbs Alive: 5 Top Tips

There are few things that step up your cooking game as much as having fresh herbs to hand and there’s definitely an appeal to harvesting food you’ve grown yourself!We then end up resorting to buying pre-cut herbs, which can be quite expensive (especially when making heaps of Mojitos) and are almost always packaged in single-use plastic.In today’s blog we’re going to explain five key steps to help you get the most out of your supermarket pot plants, so they survive longer and produce more in the long run.Most large supermarkets (and garden centres) stock a fairly good variety of potted herb plants, with the most common being Basil, Mint, Parsley, Coriander, and sometimes Thyme, Rosemary, Oregano and Sage.The key when buying potted herb plants is to pick the healthiest ones, they will grow faster and produce more for you in the long run.Avoid buying overgrown plants with tangled stems, most common with Parsley, Coriander, Oregano and Thyme.Perlite is a volcanic rock, which creates pore spaces within the soil, increasing drainage whilst aerating your growing medium.To make your potting mix go further, you could add coco coir or peat moss to bulk it up.One of the most common reasons supermarket herb pots don’t last long is because they’re root bound.This means the roots have overgrown the pot they’re in and have begun to grow in circles trying to find more space, water and nutrients.If you don’t have any old pots lying around, you can also use any other large plastic containers like ice cream or yoghurt tubs, as long as you make some drainage holes at the bottom.In preparation, add an inch or two of growing medium to the bottom of the pots so they are ready for the next step.Most herb plants you will buy are multi-sown, this means multiple seeds are sown in the small nursery pot, which leads to overcrowding as they grow.I find using a large tablespoon allows me to carefully add mix into hard to reach spots in the pots.At this point you’ve split and repotted your herbs into multiple pots with lots of fresh growing medium.Coriander - Remove 1 or 2 of the outermost stems from each plant and allow the middle to grow for an additional week or two before picking again.The versatility and robustness of herb plants allows us to grow the flavours from across the world in our temperate British gardens and that is something we should all be taking advantage of!We aim to bring people closer to food production and help to create a culture of healthy, sustainable living. .

Thyme: Indoor Plant Care & Growing Guide

When growing thyme indoors, the biggest challenge you'll face is ensuring the plant receives consistently bright light.Thyme is a well-known sun lover, preferring to be planted or placed in a spot with access to full light nearly all day long.A bright windowsill that gets around 8 hours of sun a day is ideal, but if your home is rather shaded or you're looking to keep your thyme thriving through the darker winter months, a snug spot under some florescent grow lights will work too.As best you can, strive to maintain temperatures in your home between 60 and 80 degrees Fahrenheit, taking care to keep humidity to a minimum.Keep in mind, thyme will flower but unlike other herbs, this is not a sign of overwatering or "bolting"—it will continue to thrive beyond blooming as long as you trim it back to promote new growth.Pay close attention to the packaging of your chosen fertilizer to ensure you add just enough to help, not hurt, your thyme plants.Thyme doesn't need much room to grow, so a container as small as 4 inches in diameter can be enough for young plants.Select a soil mixture that is very dry and well-draining, as thyme is particularly susceptible to root rot and overwatering.A pot with ample drainage is also important, and those made of clay or terracotta can be beneficial in wicking away extra moisture from the soil.Thyme grown in containers can become tall, so place it in an area where high winds won't knock it over.As a general rule of thumb, it should come inside to a sunny windowsill when the temperatures drop to around 60 degrees Fahrenheit.Once the seedlings sprout (it takes 14 to 28 days), they can be carefully transplanted into their final pots (or into the ground, if you're planting in the garden).Though easy to care for, thyme is susceptible to a few pests and diseases that, although not typically fatal, can be annoying for gardeners to deal with.To prevent and treat infestations, use neem oil where necessary, being careful to follow label instructions. .
