Sowing and Growing

Sowing and Growing:

  1. Prepare your soil mix and put your seeds at 2 cm depth.
  2. Spray the seeds and cover them with a plastic case to accelerate the germination process, don’t forget to make holes in the plastic case for the seeds to breathe.
  3. Spray the seeds with water using a sprinkler or sprayer until the soil is completely wet so that the soil is moist enough to germinate the seeds (you can check the moisture of the soil by rubbing the soil between your fingers or sticking your finger in the soil, and if the soil is sufficiently moist, you will feel the moisture of the soil between your fingers) and cover them with a plastic bag to speed up the germination process, and don’t forget to make holes in the plastic bag so that the seeds can breathe.
  4. After germination, incubated the trays or planting pots by watering them carefully and not exposing them to direct sunlight for a period of not less than 20 days, and then the plant is ready to be planted in the soil or in larger pots and exposed them to direct sun after the appearance of 5 true leaves.

Irrigation:

Thyme is a drought tolerant plant, but it must be watered at least 2 times to produce an average yield. Care must be taken not to over-irrigate, especially in poor drainage soils.

The soil in which thyme is planted is prepared by adding about 20% of plant compost (that is, if the volume of the pot can reach 5 liters of soil, the yield of the plant compost is equivalent to only 1 liter, and you can purchase the soil mixture provided by Harraz Farm & Garden on our website).

Some organic fertilizers can be used with thyme, such as:

Vermitea: It is added at a rate of 5 cm per liter of water, and the plant is treated with it once every 10 days only by irrigation in the soil.

Wood vinegar: It is added at a rate of 2.5 cm per liter of water, and the plant is treated with it once every 10 days only by spraying on the leaves of the plant.

Humic acid: The recommendations attached to the package are added to a liter of water, and the plant is treated with it once every 10 days only by spraying on the leaves of the plant or irrigating directly in the soil.
