Thyme characteristics:

  1. Description: Thyme is a perennial shrub with small, lanceolate leaves that are covered with small hairs. The leaves are grayish green and have an intense aroma and flavor. The flowers are white or pale pink and grow in small clusters at the top of the stems.

  2. Size: The size of thyme plants varies, but they generally reach between 15 and 30 centimeters in height.

Uses of thyme:

  1. Culinary: Thyme is widely used as a seasoning in cooking. It adds an earthy, slightly spicy and aromatic flavor to a variety of dishes, including meats, poultry, fish, soups, sauces and stews.

  2. Medicinal: Thyme has also been used in traditional medicine for its possible medicinal properties. It is believed to have antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial properties, and has been used to relieve respiratory and digestive problems.

Climate and soil:

  1. Climate: Thyme prefers warm, sunny climates. It is drought resistant and can grow in moderate to high heat conditions.

  2. Soil: Thyme thrives in well-drained, slightly alkaline soil. It does not tolerate excessive humidity, so it is important to prevent the roots from becoming waterlogged.

Sowing and cultivation:

  1. Planting: Thyme can be grown from seeds or cuttings. The seeds are sown in spring in a sunny location and lightly covered with soil. You can also buy established thyme plants from nurseries.

  2. Care: Thyme is a resistant plant that requires little maintenance. It needs to be watered regularly during its first year of growth, but once established, it is drought tolerant. It can be pruned to promote denser growth and to maintain shape.


  1. Harvest Time: Thyme leaves and flowers can be harvested at any time during the growing season. However, the best time to harvest is before the plant fully blooms, as this is when the leaves have their highest concentration of essential oils.

  2. Harvesting method: You can cut the thyme sprigs and hang them upside down in a warm and ventilated place to dry. Once dried, the leaves can be separated from the stems and stored in an airtight container.

Thyme is a versatile herb that can add flavor and aroma to your culinary dishes, and can also be used in infusions and natural remedies. By growing it in your garden or container, you can have access to this fresh herb all season long.
