Thyme requires so little care in the garden that is successful in any sort of growing environment. It makes a hearty ground cover, withstanding foot traffic and releasing its scent whenever disturbed.
It should be grown as a companion plant for catnip and horehound.Plant it where it receives light foot traffic and enjoy it's scent.
Thyme dries exceptionally well with little loss of flavor. The tiny leaves are stripped from the stems and then added to dishes.
