Why Thyme Need Specialized Nutrients

Thyme, known for its delicate leaves and robust flavor, requires a balanced blend of nutrients like nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium to support its growth and essential oil production.


Thyme prefers well-draining soil; water thoroughly when the top inch of soil feels dry to the touch.


Place thyme in a sunny location with at least 6-8 hours of direct sunlight daily for optimal growth.


Use a sandy, loamy soil mix with good drainage to prevent waterlogged roots and enhance aromatic oil production.
