CARE & HARVEST

Once the crop reaches 8-10 inches, snip the top of the plant, but only the green stem, not any woody sections. Ensure at least 5 inches of the plant remains.

Harvest the plants just before they flower for the highest potency.

Trimming your thyme often will encourage more fresh growth and more rounded shape.
