Plant Features

French Thyme produce slightly less woody stems than the English variety and offer spicy leaves that make tasty additions to meat dishes, soups, stews, breads, salads and infused vinegars. 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.

French Thyme

Plant was shipped in a secure manner to alleviate damage. Drooping on arrival, watered, 10 minutes later plant revived, standing about 3 tall and looking healthy. Been in ground for about a week now, showing new growth and appearing to be quite happy. On an aside I live in Hawai'i.

Time for Thyme

The thyme plant arrived quickly and in great shape! I was hoping to plant it indoors for a winter herb garden. It’s already begun to grow! GrowJoy has wonderful plants!

French Thyme

This plant arrived on time and is thriving! I have bought several thyme plants from standard super markets ...and all have died within days of purchase. These have already doubled in size!

The neighborhood cat dug this girl up, I replanted her and she's back even stronger! Super impressed

French Thyme

This plant and all of the others I've ordered have been delivered very quickly, within days of my order. The Thyme was beautiful and packed so very nicely that it was protected so there was damage. The prices are great and plants themselves wonderful. I would highly recommend this nursey without question.

From Valerie | August 29, 2019

Top Notch Herbs

These herbs came to me in excellent condition. The root ball was well formed and healthy.

From Jerome | August 29, 2019

Won't take higher temps

I took advantage of selection and filled my herb garden through GrowJoy. Plants arrived in great condition and did well. Thyme didn't care for the hotter temps (100 and over) and slowly withered.

From Deborah | June 26, 2018


I am really happy with ALL the plants, herbs that I have ordered from GrowJoy, very good people to work with !

From Linda | June 19, 2018

Doing well

I put this in a cascading multi-tiered self watering planter. Nice to see the leaves trailing, and plants have filled their assigned spaces nicely.

From Deborah | April 22, 2018

Wonderful herb, received in excellent condition!

French Thyme

We just received them, and they're very little. So far they are doing well, and I can't wait to see how big they'll be next year. I really wished they had the Lemon type available, but went with Oregano for now.

From Chelsea | April 11, 2014

French Thyme

good size and well watered, transplant was very good

From Kenneth | April 11, 2014

Good hardy French Thyme plant

The plant arrived is perfect condition.. or better stated, it survived UPS delivery. GrowJoy advised in big bold print that the package contained PERISHABLE products, but UPS, as usual, ignored the warning and delivered the plants at 7 p.m. keeping them in a hot, Phoenix baked truck all day. If only companies would stop using UPS!!!

From Fran | July 22, 2013
