Overwintering thyme

Asked August 14, 2019, 5:06 AM EDT

I have finally got a nice bed of thyme going. What is the best way to preserve it over the winter? I'd like to see it flourish next spring.

Thyme is a perennial herb. Take a look at overwintering herbs and winter protection on our website. Thyme needs a well drained soil to overwinter well. https://extension.umd.edu/hgic/topics/culture-care
