Growing Wooly Thyme Cuttings

Postby CFRASER7 » May 08, 2010 9:15 pm

Hi there,

I have had no luck searching for wooly thyme at greenhouses near me, and so I am wondering if I can take cuttings off wooly thyme plants that I already have and grow them big enough that I can transplant them before the end of the summer. I am pretty sure that wooly thyme is only propagated by cuttings, and not seeds, so I think it will work. Has anyone tried this before? Or even with other thyme plants?

Thanks,
-Christine

Your wooly thyme can be started from cuttings (better with new growth) or by the method I use, which is taking root cuttings and inserting them in situ where you want your new thyme plants to grow. I've started them from seed, but it took a long time to find a retailer who sold them, and then a very long time for them to grow, really not worth it in my opinion, better to just take the cuttings.
Hope this has been some help to you......good luck

Hi there,

Thanks for the reply, I think that that is what I will do, I'll just take some cuttings, I have some stimu so they should grow!

Thanks again,
