We are excited to have you join us! Operating out of Macomb, Michigan and serving the Macomb & Oakland counties, we are inspired to share our love and passion for gardening, and cultivate communities around the heart of gardening. Here’s to connecting with you as we explore exciting ideas of biodiversity, foodscaping, green/ living mulch, and so much more!
My Thyme Gardens highlights herbs and edibles in our gardens — for us, and the pollinators. We seek to challenge the concept that food gardening must be in a separate bed than our landscapes, where we usually keep our ornamental perennials. The four herbs we have chosen for a bountiful midwest garden are sage, Greek oregano, thyme, and rosemary*. Full of disease-fighting phytochemical compounds and minerals, these ayurvedic heroes fight countless health problems and battle pathogens to boost our health and well-being. Where do they find this power? They invite the neighborhood earthworms to gather and ingest the antifungal properties. As a thank you, the worms aerate the soil, increase root growth, and leave behind castings for maximum plant nourishment. And to think….we owe it all to the worms.
The My Thyme Gardens team embraces “full circle gardening,” creating healthy ecosystems under and above the soil. This symbiotic relationship is a fascinating theme that we will explore even more in our next post. Check back in next week as we dive in.
Another facet of our name is that “Thyme” also reminds us of giving our clients the gift of “time.” We take care of your garden so you have more time for your family!
Now that you know a little about us, leave a comment for us to learn about you. What topics do you want us to dive into and explore?

*Rosemary may not be advisable as a perennial in some winter climates. Not sure where your garden falls on the spectrum? Follow this link to see which zone you are in. Zone 5 can be borderline, and Zone 6 is safe for most varieties. We will include posts on each of the four herbs and how to care for them!
