Online Catalog for herbs and medical plants seeds Semenata.ORG provides its current and future customers with seeds of Thyme (Thymus officinalis). Ordinary thyme is a popular herb among herbalists and spice lovers. It is from the Lamiales family. The green spice, as it is also known, has a particularly strong aroma. The leaves are used fresh in soups, stews, meat dishes and more.

The thyme is a Mediterranean spice. It is popular especially in French cuisine. The stems of the plant are thin and the petals are tiny and numerous. The evergreen leaves are actually the source of the great fragrance you are probably familiar with. It is quite strong and saturated, especially when you rub the fresh petals between fingers.

The thyme is constantly surrounded by bees because the spice is very melliferous and the bees are attracted to it.

An interesting fact when using thyme is that as with many other spices you should add the herb at the end of the cooking in order to preserve their aroma and properties. It is the opposite with thyme, it is added at the beginning of the cooking. The idea is to let the herb add its oils to the meal.

If you intend to have thyme in your garden, it's good to know that it likes heat and sunlight. Shade is not good for it as herbaceous plants do not tolerate it. Any soil is suitable for sowing it.

This perennial plant grows well in any type of soil and is very cold hardy.

A few tips for its cultivation from our landscaping and garden design specialists.

First, the seeds of the ordinary Thyme are sown outside when we have constant positive temperatures, at the end of March.

Leave 25 to 30 centimeters between the seeds when sowing. When sowing them in the ground, do it at 0.5 centimeters. It takes two to four weeks for the seeds to germinate. Clean the weeds around them. At first, the development of the seeds is slower, that's why weeding is so important.
