Thyme is an herb that does great in full sun. In fact, it needs 6 to 8 hours of sunlight a day, which makes it perfect for a sunny window. Thyme has a slightly lemony flavor and is a great herb for Italian and French dishes. You don’t need very much time to add great flavor. If you want, you can even use your fresh thyme to make tea if you have a sore throat. It is a great herb for relieving a sore throat, and if you have some in your indoor herb garden all you have to do is clip a little thyme from your plant.
