A very tasty herb! Crush the leaves gently to release more flavour.
Thyme, the herb of many virtues, has been around for thousands of years. Today, it is used in cooking and also as a home remedy, for example as a tea to help calm a cough.
Thyme can withstand prolonged heat, making it great for stews and casseroles which are cooked for a long time. A classic use of thyme is fried in butter and garlic, making a mouth-watering sauce for steaks!

Thyme germinates in about one week. It grows slowly but surely. Thyme should be first cut when it’s 6 cm tall.
From then on, harvest by cutting the stem just above the pair of leaves below. The plant can be cut a lot at once, as long as a few pairs of leaves remain under the cutting point. This will encourage new branches and thicker growth, producing more leaves to harvest.
