I think this is one of those herbs that does not produce viable seeds, so you probably have to propagate some vegetative way, like dividing the plant.
Lots of the thymes are like this, too. :(
Starting plants by seeds is so much easier!

Wow this is such an old post of mine... But I had a few responses so I thought I would post what I found.
Last year, right before a frost, I collected all of the bracts off the plant. I wintersowed them in a milkjug, not worrying about what was chaff or seed. ....
I GOT SEVERAL PLANTS THAT RESEMBLE THE PARENT PLANT!!! WHOOHOOOOO!!!!!!!
