Thyme doesn’t need a lot of fertilizer

Many gardeners believe that thyme thrives on neglect. With its origins in the dry, rocky Mediterranean, thyme is used to getting by without much in the way of nutrients. Amending the soil each year with a bit of compost and dressing the soil around the plants with diluted fish emulsion or liquid seaweed halfway through the summer provides plenty of nutrients for thyme to grow healthy and full.
