The right site

Growing in pots that can be brought inside over the winter works a treat. Thyme does not appreciate our wet weather!

Can be grown in....

Pots are ideal for growing thyme.

How far apart?

25cm apart or one plant to a pot.

Looking after your plants....

Thyme needs sun and warmth, so be sure to keep pots in a sheltered place, or indoors if the weather is wet.


Watering them

Thyme prefers drier soil, so you will not need to water it very often.



Give it a trim

Cut your thyme plant back a little during the summer to encourage your plant to grow more. At the end of autumn, cut it right back.


Great with...

  • Leeks
