    About the Thyme Sparkling Bright

    Care Instructions

    Thyme, once established, is usually unfussy. They just don't like things too cold and damp. Pop in well drained soil. They need watering in while establishing, then they rarely need watering, except when it's warm and especially dry.

    Position, sunlight and more

    Thyme likes a warm, sunny place. The more sun, the stronger the flavour. Makes for a perfect windowsill herb.

    Height and Spread

    Sparkling Bright will reach 15cm in height and spread to 20cm.

    Feeding, Pruning & more

    Feeding - Thyme doesn't like rich soil, but will enjoy a high potash plant food in the spring.
    Pruning - Your herbs can be picked all year around. Trim after flowering to keep them compact and promote new growth.
    Propagation - Cuttings are best way, to grow new plants. They don't take long to root, then you can transfer to a pot or the ground. Cuttings should be at least 3" long.

    Our pot & plant size explained

    At Newlands Nursery we grow and sell plants in a variety of different sizes, from small starter plants up to planted containers. 

    We know it can be tricky to picture the size of each plant. This page gives you an idea of the size of the plants we are sending out.

    Please keep in mind that plants vary from one season to the next. The size of the plant refers to the pot or plug it is grown in, rather than the height of the plant, unless specifically mentioned on the plant page.

    Starter Plant (Plug Plant)

    Plug Size: 2cm by 4cm. Our most popular size. This is often the most economical way of buying plants and is a great way to get a head start on the season. Generally this size is best to be potted up before planting out.
