Elfin Thyme

I'm looking to find out about planting Elfin Thyme for use between patio stones. Does anyone know where to find these seeds? I assume I will have to plant in the spring or can I sow them now for growth next spring? I am not interested in Wooly Thyme.

RE: Elfin Thyme

If you want that particular strain, you may need to find it at a gardening center, since it may not come true from seed. I have bought seeds from Thyme Garden and they carry mixed creeping thyme, very low creeping thyme, and one they call 'Magic Carpet', also around 1/2" tall.

Here is a link that might be useful: Thyme Garden

RE: Elfin Thyme

Try this search. (Unfortunately you'll find any page that contains both words.)

It's a special Google search for seeds which I copied from a message board and saved as a Firefox bookmark. I don't know if the seed search is generally available from Google, but you can always do what I do: save this search, then when you want to use it, delete the current keywords and enter a new search. Can't live without it.
