It is such a pleasure to grow herbs indoors! What could be better than having the scents and flavors near at hand?
Thyme (Thymus spp.) is a beautiful herb that can be used in a variety of ways and it tolerates indoor conditions really well if you can provide plenty of sunshine and well-drained soil. It is better to grow thyme in a clay pot which will allow the herb to dry out between waterings and prevent excessively wet roots as thyme isn’t tolerant of soggy soil conditions. The container should have drainage holes as well.
Cut back woody stems to encourage fresh new growth. You can also trim off its pretty flowers to dry them for a sachet or use them in tea (grow your thyme organically!) Removal of flowers also increases foliage production.
Happy indoor gardening! 🙂
