Dwarf Creeping Thyme is a low-growing perennial herb, known for its small, gray-green leaves and delicate, pink, or lavender flowers. The plant has a strong, fragrant aroma and is often used as a ground cover or in rock gardens. It's also used in cooking, it adds a subtle thyme flavor to dishes and is often used to season meats, fish, and vegetables.
To grow Dwarf Creeping Thyme, you will need:
Well-drained, sandy soil
Seeds or young plants
Choose a well-drained, sunny spot in your garden for your thyme.
If you're starting with seeds, sow them in seed trays or pots filled with seed compost and cover them with a light dusting of compost or vermiculite. Keep the compost moist but not waterlogged, and place the trays in a propagator or cover them with a plastic bag and place them in a warm spot.
If you're planting young plants, space them about 6 inches apart, and cover them with 1/4 inch of soil.
Water the thyme regularly, keeping the soil consistently moist but not waterlogged.
Once established, thyme is drought-tolerant, and it is not necessary to fertilize it.
Prune the thyme in early spring to remove any dead or woody growth.
