Summer Thyme is a perennial kitchen herb that produces tender stems studded with aromatic leaves. Thyme is an essential herb in Mediterranean cuisine.

Summer Thyme is a bit less hardy than Thyme 'German Winter'. Since Summer Thyme grows considerably faster than Thyme 'German Winter', its stems are more tender (not as woody), which simplifies the processing.

Sow Summer Thyme indoors in pots or trays in March and April and plant it outdoors or in the greenhouse in May at a spacing of 30 x 15 cm or 25 x 25 cm. 

Harvesting can begin at the end of June. In following years, harvesting can start earlier depending on the location: the warmer and sunnier, the earlier. Summer Thyme will flower at the beginning of its second year of cultivation. 

Harvest thyme by cutting off its stems a number of centimetres above the ground or pot.

It is best to plant thyme in a dry sunny place in the garden with fairly poor, well-drained soil.
