Most varieties of Thyme are started from cuttings. English or common Thyme is an easy to grow from seed, evergreen perennial which requires little to no care, thrives in poor soil and hot, dry conditions. It is mannerly in the garden as it fills spaces nicely but pulls up easily where it’s not wanted. For best results, plant Thyme in a well-drained, dry location. Trim periodically to encourage new and tender growth.
