creeping thyme help
i am at my last straw at this point. i have been trying to grow creeping thyme to create a small thyme lawn.
i have bought plants and tried cuttings, and both have not worked in the areas that i've planted them - YET - in other areas, such as surrounding rose bushes and other plants that have their own dripper, thyme plants just spring up.
now that confuses me, since everything i've read says that thyme likes to be dry, or at least well drained and over-watering can be bad.
i want to try one more time with purchasing new plants, and obviously i want it to work, so i would like some advice.
i have heard to plant these plants in compost, which will improve drainage in the clay soils i have here in albuquerque, but how much to water? the people i buy the plants from tell me that they die because i over water, but then the plants only spring up (randomly) in places where there's daily water.
i need some help, needless to say. thank you-
