How to grow Thyme from Cuttings

Choosing the right cuttings of thyme requires experience. We generally choose healthy young branches. It is good to take cuttings during spring. Cuttings should be 4-6 inches (10-15 cm) long. We remove the leaves at the bottom 2/3 of the stem (the part that is going to be put in the pot). Many farmers use special rooting powders in order to increase the rooting success. The pots shall contain a 3 part mix, 1/3 peat moss, 1/3 vermiculite and 1/3 commercial potting mix. We place the pots in a warm place and we irrigate frequently, but only when the pot is completely dry. We can transplant only when the plants have developed a solid root system and they have reached a height of 6 inches (15 cm).

Alternatively, we can “divide” a plant. This means that we can take 3-4 or more divisions of a healthy and thriving plant, and each division will have a well-developed root system. In this way, we can propagate true to type thyme plants without destroying the mother plant, and these divisions generally have very high rates of survival and success, provided their roots are not destroyed during transplant.
