(German thyme; Winter thyme) Most popular, standard variety! Simple, robust and upright growth habit makes it a perfect potted or garden plant. Medicinally, thyme has carminative properties, which allow it to aid in digestion by stimulating digestive enzymes and improving sluggish bowels. More importantly, its antibacterial action has been recognized since ancient times, once used as an embalming fluid by the Ancient egyptians. Its antimicrobial action makes it great for fighting bacterial, yeast and fungal infections both internally and topically. Also utilized as a preservative. Helps to relieve coughing, as noted by Hippocrates, and may even be effective at reducing circulating tumour cells. Plant in sandy, well drained soil in full sun. Thyme is typically low maintenance, but will need to be pruned to encourage a bushy growth and prevent woodyness. Sensitive to over watering, as thyme is susceptible to fungal diseases and root rot if conditions are too wet. Harvest in the morning, as concentrations of aromatic oils are highest at this time. Height up to 1 foot.
