How to Grow Thyme from Seed

Growing Thyme from seed is a simple and rewarding process. Here is a step-by-step guide to help you get started:

  1. Fill a seed tray or small pots with compost, leaving a gap of about 1cm from the top.

  2. Sow the Thyme seeds thinly on top of the compost, covering them with a fine layer of vermiculite or compost.

  3. Water the seeds gently with a fine spray.

  4. Cover the tray or pots with a propagator lid or a plastic bag to keep the soil moist.

  5. Place the tray or pots in a warm, well-lit area, but out of direct sunlight.

  6. Once the seedlings have grown to a height of about 5cm, they can be transplanted into larger pots or planted outdoors.

  7. Delicious Thyme will be ready to harvest after 3 months.
