Suffolk Herbs - Herb - Creeping Thyme - 450 Seeds
Creeping (Wild) Thyme - Thymus Serpyllum
This variety features decorative evergreen carpeting with pink flowers that are attractive to bees. It is superb for the rock garden, and can be used for flavouring.
Sow inside in spring in a seed tray of soil-less compost and cover with vermiculite. Keep at 20C until germination, which takes about two weeks. Prick out when large enough and grow on in small pots. It prefers light, well-drained soil in full sun. Add lime if required. Do not over water after germination has taken place as this causes damping off.
