Thyme is a Mediterranean herb with dietary, medicinal and ornamental uses. The species most commonly cultivated and used for culinary purposes is Thymus vulgaris. The Herb is best cultivated in a hot and sunny location with well-drained soil. It is generally planted in the spring and grows as a perennial thereafter. Dried thyme retains its flavours much better than many other herbs.
Thyme is available in crushed and ground
