Thyme is a drought-tolerant, hardy, perennial herb. It has a strong flavour and thrives in the heat of the Queensland summers. Thyme is a great plant for the hottest, driest parts of the garden and will thrive in spots where most plants really struggle. It’s a pretty little herb and fits right in as part of the landscaping or as a rewarding addition to the veggie or herb garden.

Care Considerations:

Like other woody herbs, thyme is a short-lived perennial and will need to be replaced after a few years; usually 3 or 4, depending on how well cared for your plants are. The good news is that thyme is easy to propagate from cuttings, so you can replace your plants when they start to look woody and tired.
