Thyme Growing Season In India  

Thyme can grow at any time and in any season except in extremely cold climates but it prefers sunny and dry conditions. Sow thyme seeds in the spring (February-March) or late summer (late May-June)

How To Grow Thyme In Pots  

Thyme is very suitable for growing in pots as it is easy to move according to their growing conditions. Thyme seeds can be sown directly into any pot or transplanted, but transplanting is recommended by most gardeners. To plant thyme, you need a pot or grow bag of at least 12- 24 inches wide and 12-15 inches deep with well-draining holes. You can sow thyme seeds either indoors or outdoors in warm climates and the optimum temperature for seed germination is between 15-21°C.  

Thyme Imported Seeds Sowing Method 

Select a seedling tray or small-sized pot (up to 5 inches deep), fill it with a growing medium such as coco peat or perlite, and spread the thyme seeds over it, then cover with a thin layer of soil over the seeds. Water gently and keep the soil moist. Place the seedling tray in a dark place for the seeds to germinate. Thyme seeds germinate in about 2-4 weeks (depending on growing condition). After the seeds have germinated, when the plant reaches 3-4 inches tall, you can transplant it into larger pots or grow bags. Spacing should be maintained during planting as thyme requires air circulation, especially in hot or humid conditions. Thyme should be planted in a large pot about 12-24 inches apart.

Best Fertilizer For Thyme Plants

Thyme plants don’t require additional fertilizer, just apply a diluted all-purpose fertilizer (such as mustard cake and vermicompost) every spring.
