Official Name: Thymus vulgaris 

General description: Thyme is a Mediterranean herb with dietary, medicinal, and ornamental uses. The flowers, leaves, and oil of thyme have been used to treat a range of symptoms and complaints. The herb Thyme is the dried leaves of Thymus vulgaris, a small perennial of the mint family. The leaves measure about one quarter of an inch in length and one tenth of an inch in width. The plant grows about eighteen inches tall and produces small flowers that are very attractive to honey bees. Thyme is herb that belongs to the family Lamiaceae. There are around 350 species of thyme that are native to Europe, Asia and Africa. Thyme prefers sunny areas and well-drained soil. It tolerates frost and drought. People are familiar with flavoring and medical properties of thyme at least couple of thousand years. Thyme is cultivated mainly as spice and as an ornamental plant today. Essential oils extracted from the leaves and flowers are used in chemical industry for the production of hand sanitizers and in the industry of perfumes. Thyme is also often used in a treatment of numerous disorders.

How to grow: 

  • Where: Thyme is another culinary herb that makes bringing fresh flavor to the kitchen an easy process. It thrives in hot conditions, loves full-sun, and doesn’t need constant watering or attention. Plant thyme in both containers and within the garden. I like to plant mine near my rosemary, since their needs are nearly identical. I even let a couple of my thyme plants flower, since the bees love it so much.
  • When: Like mint, thyme can prove challenging to start from seed. I’ve found the best results from either propagating from cuttings or by layering. I have purchased only three thyme plants from the garden center, and by means of cuttings, I now have thyme all throughout my garden. Regardless of which propagation method you choose, plant young thyme plants only after the ground temperature reaches 70°F, about 2 to 3 weeks before the last frost.
  • Propagate from cuttings: Clip a three-inch cutting from the very tip of a stem, apply rooting hormone on the exposed portion of the stem, and plant it in either sterile sand or vermiculite. Roots will emerge within about six weeks. Transfer to a small pot, let the root ball form, and then transfer to a large pot or directly to your garden.

    Propagate by layering: Take a long thyme stem and carefully secure it along the soil with wire or a U-shaped stake, leaving four inches of the tip free. Make sure the pinned portion is directly touching the soil. Roots will start to form along the stem within about a month. Cut away the newly rooted plant from the main plant and transfer elsewhere within the garden or to a large pot.

    Really, the more you trim your thyme, the more it grows. Cut fresh stems in the morning, leaving behind tough, woody portions. Leave behind at least five inches of growth, so that the plant can still flourish. Regular pruning not only encourages more growth, but also promotes a more rounded shape.

Benefits:

Thymol is one of a naturally occurring class of compounds known as biocides.

These are substances that can destroy harmful organisms, such as infectious bacteria.

Used alongside other biocides, such as carvacrol, thyme has strong antimicrobial properties.
