Thyme Plant Propagation, Planting and Plant Spacing



Thyme Plants Propagation and Planting

Thyme plants can be propagated by seeds or cuttings. There are pros and cons in each method. If you do not have your own healthy plants to divide, layer or get stems, then starting your plants from seeds will cost much less than buying thousands of stems. On the other hand, growing thyme from seed will result in not true to type plants. Growing from seed is an affordable but time consuming method that has a certain degree of risk, and needs high quality management in order to ensure plant uniformity. Starting the plants from cuttings costs more, but you can have true to type plants and be ready to plant them in the field in less time.

Thyme Plant Spacing and Population

Regardless of whether we started our plants from seed or cuttings, we transplant either during autumn or spring, but definitely 3 weeks after the last frost. In every hectare (1 hectare = 2,47 acres = 10.000 m2), on average we have about 50.000 – 75.000 plants. We normally plant in rows that will have a distance range of 20-30 inches (50-75 cm). The distances between the plants inside the row range from to 8-16 inches (20-40 cm). Planting is done through machines or by hand.
