Plant Features

English Thyme is a low-growing variety with fragrant leaves most commonly used for seasoning meats, vegetables, vinegars, soups, stews, tomato sauces and cheeses. Thyme grows best in full sun locations with well-drained soils. Plants should be sheared back after flowering to keep the foliage from getting woody. It can be grown indoors within a few feet of a east, south, or west facing window. If grown indoors, potting mix should slightly dry before watering.

Very bushy and strong

I trimmed this plant in order to re-pot it and I'm drying the clippings for stew. I used some and they added great flavor to my dinner.

Best on-line nursery I've ever used

I was a little nervous when I ordered my alpine balcony geraniums. They arrived in perfect condition and were larger than I expected. From then on I check here first when I need plants. And when they have a sale, I stock up. Every order has arrived in perfect condition and start growing immediately. I replant them in pots first if I am not ready to put in ground. So glad I found this wonderful nursery.

Plant arrived in a protective container and was ready to plant right away. Plant is growing strong and thriving!

From WENDY | April 30, 2019

Great quality

Ordered three herbs but would have liked another three... those were already sold out. Next year, I will make sure I order earlier in the season! Quality of the plants and quality of delivery containers are both fabulous. No problems with either. Love to order from you!

Hello Thyme-English Herb Plant

My Thyme-English Herb Plant arrived just as they said that it would and I truly love the way they packaged these Plants and prepare them for arrival to you.They are healthy and ready for you. I recommend this site for plants.

Happy Planter

My order was received alive (very good sized) and very well packed. They have been planted in containers on my balcony and are flourishing. I have been ordering from GrowJoy for at least four years and have always been pleased with the results. Last year I placed my order a bit late and some of the herbs I wanted were no longer available. I ordered from two other sources and was extremely disappointed in the results. The plants were small and sickly looking and a couple did not survive.

Thyme - English

Bought it a year ago. Plant arrived healthy and grew nicely during the summer. It survived through a very tough winter we had in the North East. I use it a lot in cooking.

From Olga | June 06, 2014


I have ordered my plants from GrowJoy for years and have never had any problems. Always fast shipping and great plants
