Sowing & cultivation: The seeds of the thyme are extremely fine. Such fine seed should be preferred in small pots or cultivation trays. To do this, fill the pot with a mixture of sowing earth and sand. The substrate should be slightly moistened and the seeds distributed as evenly as possible. Keep the substrate moist without drowning the seed. After two weeks, the seeds begin to germinate and should be transplanted into a larger pot after another five weeks. If no more frost is expected, the young plants can be planted from the end of May into the garden. Take a distance of about 25 x 25cm.
