Growing: Water seedlings occasionally until they become established. Though they prefer average or slightly moist soil, mature plants tolerate drought and poor soil as well as rocky soil or gravel. This plant will self-seed readily, and attracts butterflies and bees. It makes an excellent ground cover or border plant. Mature plants can be divided.
Harvesting: Creeping thyme blossoms do not perform well as cut flowers, and are best enjoyed outdoors as ground cover.
All multiple orders of the same seed are put in the same bag. For example if you order 500 beefsteak tomato seeds x 3 then 1500 seeds will be put in the same bag. We do not send out 3 individual bags with 500 in each. This goes for all seeds unless they are listings of different seeds.
