Herb Profile – Thyme

February 15, 2013 Gardening Gals Uncategorized

ThymeThyme is a hardy perennial that pretty much grows itself.  It is drought tolerant so too much moisture will rot the plant.

Thyme can grow well indoors if given a bright, sunny window.

Prune hard in early spring to prevent the plant getting too woody then continually harvest to encourage new growth.

Thyme is a nice to add to tomato sauces, cheeses, eggs and vegetables.  It can also be used to flavour breads,vinegars, marinades, sauces and is a part of the classic bouquet garni.

Apparently thyme can speed the recovery of a hangover!!
