Thyme - Seed & Pot Starter Kit
Thyme is a low growing herb with a strong flavour. This one is a tricky one and requires some patience - thyme seeds can take up to 10 weeks to sprout. Although, once they've sprouted and begin to grow, they can tolerate a wide range of conditions, and in fact this plant will end up tasting better if you neglect it!
Once your thyme seedling has grown to about 5cm, simply fill the terracotta pot with soil and plant the whole 'starter' pot, seedling and all, into the terracotta pot!
Your grow kit will contain:
- 1 x Thyme seed packet.
- 1 x Coir starter pot.
- 1 x Peat soil pellet.
- 1 x Classic terracotta planter pot (13cm wide x 13cm tall).
*potting soil for terracotta pot not included - this saves you plenty of money in postage!
