Thyme, Creeping (Thymus serphyllum), packet of 100 seeds, organic

$3.95

Family:  Mint (Lamiaceae)

Zones 5 to 9

Creeping groundcover native to temperate Europe.  Flowers pink-purple to 3 inches.  Generally more popular for filling the cracks in sidewalks than in eggs, the plant does have a certain presence, and a bit of a spiciness, especially if carefully dried and the dried leaves removed from the stem. The plant is preferred for decking out classic settings such as sundials and decorative fountains.  Sow in flats and work up in small pots or plugs, then set out to 6 inches apart and a mat will soon form.

  1. Question

    Does it make any sense at all to plant this now? (late summer in KY) I’m scheming on how to reduce the amount of grass in my yard and while most of the yard is rich slow draining clay, there are some rocky spots that i think must’ve been a gravel driveway gone by. So i was thinking of planting this there…

      Hello! Love Kentucky. If you you have greenhouse facilities you can start working up the plants now and set them to the gravel area in the spring. If you don’t have greenhouse facilities, plant the seeds in the spring.
