This miniature thyme is fragrant, pretty, and charming. It's also incredibly useful. Only 2"-3" tall, you can walk on it (releasing its lemony aroma), tuck it between pavers in a garden path, use it as a tidy border or fill in a flower bed. It grows quickly but isn't pushy, delivers texture, fragrance, and flowers, is great for cooking, and requires almost no care.

A hardy perennial in zones 4-9, Creeping Thyme has a place in almost every garden. It cascades nicely in a rockery, fills in cracks, spills out of planters. In summer, it's covered with tiny pink blooms that attract honeybees and butterflies. It can be planted as a lawn that never needs mowing.

Creeping Thyme thrives in full sun or light shade, well-draining soil, with occasional water. It blooms in late spring through early summer. The pink-purple blooms are so dense that they completely cover the foliage. The rest of the year it's dense green. This is the most charming, versatile, and least demanding ground cover ever.

Surface sow the tiny seeds in a flat, keep them warm and moist. USE A LIGHT MIST setting on your spray bottle/hose to water! Seeds are very tiny and too much pressure can dislodge them. Once ready, then tear off chunks of seedlings and plant them 6" apart. They'll fill in over time. This much seed will cover about 25 square feet. Four packs will cover about 100 square feet. Sixteen packs will cover 1000 square feet, about a half a pound.

Amazing! I received the seeds on February 11th. I got them in dirt and within 5 days(attached photo taken Feb. 16th)there were dozens of little starts. Thank you!

Seeds sprouted and are thriving. The new seedlings struggled in our ridiculous heat this summer (normal), but once it cooled off, they grew like crazy. I’m using the creeping thyme as a companion/ living mulch for my container roses. So far everyone is happy.

I was nervous starting from scratch with seeds as it’s my first time but these were shipped fast and have not disappointed. Two weeks and they are growing steady.
