Purple Thyme

I got a letter from a fellow tomato grower today and he mentioned that his pepper plant babies were purple from phosphorus deficiency. Apparently being too cold can cause it. We first noticed it with the thyme plant we brought in a few weeks ago. Within a couple of days, the plant was completely green and the purple was gone. All the thyme in the greenhouse (unheated) is purple right now.

Here’s an article that mentions it

Cool stuff you can learn in the garden!
