Growing Instructions

Wild or creeping thyme, Thymus serpyllum, is native to a wide area of Europe and Asia, including the UK. It’s a good choice for ground cover in sunny sites, including in gravel and rock gardens. You can even use it to create an aromatic thyme lawn. For best results grow Thymus serpyllum in full sun and well-drained soil. Trim after flowering to keep it compact.

Seeds can be sown indoors in late winter to spring or in autumn at temperatures around 13°C (55°F) or they can be sown directly into the garden between May and August. Sowing Indoors: Sow seed on the surface of lightly firmed, moist seed compost in pots or trays. Do not cover as they need light to germinate.
