    Planting Instructions

    Thyme is rarely attacked by pests or diseases but if it does happen, the chances are it is because it has been overfed and watered leading to sappy young growth that aphids love. Trim the plants after flowering to encourage more foliage and to stop the plant becoming woody. If in pots only feed once a year in spring and do not overwater, especially in winter.
