Thyme ground cover seeds.

Posted by catnohat (My Page) on

I ordered 1000 creeping thyme seed that should be arriving any day now. I am hoping to eventually fill in fairly large area with thyme ground cover. I wanted to try my hand at starting some myself.

Does anyone happen to have a different variety of thyme seed that they would like to trade a few for creeping thyme? Maybe wooly, little prince, or elfin? I did get a wooly thyme plant at the swap. Thanks to whoever that was from! Just thought I would ask. I would like a nice variety, but didn't want to buy 4000 seed. I had a hard time finding small packets of seed.

Thanks everyone-

RE: Thyme ground cover seeds.

Can I ask where you ordered from? I need to order some wooly and/or elfin seeds...

Between bad wildfires last summer and this dang drought, much of mine didn't come back this year.

I've never started them from seed before either... but it can't be that hard. I've never had trouble starting regular thyme from seed. Once established, the stuff usually creeps in around rocks, and fills in by itself. I want to add more around my paths this year as well.

I got my creeping thyme seed from
KSS Point System, LLC

They were cheap and I was hoping to order several different kinds, but they only had creeping in the ground covers. I would be interested in splitting some of the other kinds with you Les, if you are going to be ordering them. Let me know, I could just mail you some cash and when you get the seeds you could just stick some of them in the mail to me!
