Creeping thyme (Thymus serpyllum)

    Thanks chellie. I must say I am pleased with mine. I kept it watered until it was well established but now it looks after itself. It copes with a bit of walking on and I just trim it back when it creeps too far over the stones. I don't use it for cooking, just ground cover. The more purple one usually ends up covered in flowers and is the lowest growing.

    Good luck! image

    Tricky to remember, I think I planted them 5 or 6 years ago. It was April time, the Easter hols, when I planted them and they were quite sparse to begin with as I split up each plant I bought into about 4. I kept them watered that year. By the following year they were more knitted together I think.
