6-8” tall x 12” wide. ‘Fredo’ Garden Thyme (Thymus vulgaris) has a full, mounding habit, strong upright stems, and pale summer flowers, make it an ideal candidate for pots that you can enjoy near your home. Make this English thyme a strong feature in your sunny container gardens. Plant ‘Fredo’ in poor to average soils that are well-drained, and allow plants to dry out between deep watering. Thymus vulgaris does not respond well to wet, cool conditions – it will succumb to fungus and defoliation without good ventilation and sun exposure. In the early spring, cut plants back by a third to two-thirds to keep the plant from becoming overly woody. If your winters are very wet, consider placing the plant in a sheltered location. If mulching to keep down weeds, ensure that the crown of the plant is not covered. Great for sunny, dry soils, containers and rock gardens.
