1000 seeds, grown in the USA, non GMO seeds

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 purple 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, 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.

Our Guarantee

We promise to offer fresh, top quality seeds from growers we know and trust. All seed is tested for purity, germination and vigor before being offered for sale. We do not sell hybrid or genetically modified seed.

Please check your order as soon as you receive it. Let us know if there are any problems and we will make things right.

Many of our seeds are rare and require special treatment. We provide germination guidance and recommend you research exotic seeds before ordering. Because we are not there to plant them, we cannot be responsible for germination failure due to improper planting or climate conditions. Please do your homework.
