Description How to Grow More Info Delivery
Creeping Thyme is perfect for producing a low carpet of ground cover that attracts bees to its miniature pink blooms. Especially practical in coastal areas, this fragrant evergreen will cope splendidly with wind and dry conditions. Renowned for being one of the most useful kitchen herbs, this variety will grow almost anywhere; in rock gardens, containers and even cracks between paving. Height: 20cm (8"). Spread: 45cm (18").

Culinary information: Some parts of these flowers are edible. Click here for more details about edible flowers.

Grow Thyme plants in neutral to alkaline, well drained soil, in full sun.
Feed and water herb plants regularly until they are fully established. Once established, thyme is reasonably drought tolerant and requires little attention. After flowering, cut back thyme plants to maintain compact bushy growth.
