Thymus Plant Care

Will tolerate most soils provided they are well-drained (especially in winter). Division can be done in spring or fall. Can be divided and replanted to regenerate growth or dig and transplant a few rooted sections to establish a new area. Cut off any winter damage to new growth in early spring. Any heavy pruning should be done before August. Evergreen in winter.
