    Planting:
    -- Sow in pots or flats in Spring or Autumn or anytime for indoor use
    -- Sow seed on the surface of lightly firmed, moist seed potting mix
    -- Do not cover the seed --they need light to germinate
    -- Cover the seed container with a piece of clear plastic and place in diffused light
    -- Once germination begins lift cover to gradually allow new air in

    == When large enough to handle, transplant seedlings into pots
    == Gradually acclimate to outdoor conditions, if planting out is desired, for 10-15 days before planting out after all risk of frost has past
    == Grow in full sun
    == Refrain from cutting back to hard

    Harvesting
    -- Harvest small leaves for fresh use throughout the summer -best before flowering occurs
    -- Hang in small bunches to dry
    -- Use small stems in olive oil

    Hints:
    == Fresh thyme has a softer flavor than dried thyme
    == Dried Thyme is better in spicy food
    == Thyme has been known to repel cabbage worms and other pests making it a perfect companion plant
