Thyme is a familiar cooking herb. There are over 400 species of thyme, yet the common variety is the one typically used as a seasoning. Thyme is grown as a fragrant ground covering. Each plant grows between 6 and 12-inches tall and will spread out more than a foot. Thyme does not tolerate moist, soggy soil and needs a well draining soil and plenty of sunshine. It is a drought resistant plant and in some areas can survive with infrequent watering.
Schedule your watering for the morning.
Touch the soil beneath the plant to test for dryness. If the soil is dry it needs to be watered. If it is moist or damp, do not water.
Attach the sprayer attachment to your hose.
Wet the soil beneath the plant with the hose, gently running the water. Water until the soil is moist, yet not soggy. The soil should be moist to a depth of 2 to 4 inches.
