SOWING:Transplant (recommended): Start seeds in flats 8-10 weeks before the last frost. Sow seeds on top of the growing medium and cover with a thin layer of soil mix. Keep moist until germination. Transplant to individual containers when plants have 4 true leaves. After the last frost in spring, transplant outside and space 6-8" apart, in rows 12-18" apart. Pinch off growing tips of upright growing varieties to make bushier plants.

Thyme grows best in light, dry, well-drained soil.

Note:Thyme will become woody and needs to be divided or replaced after 3-4 years.
