Thyme Hedge

I had no trouble starting seed indoors in peat pots. The small starts I planted in my perennial garden became a lovely low, fragrant hedge, that I especially enjoyed each time I brushed against it while gardening. I'm hoping it will survive the winter in central Ohio and that clipping it in the spring will give me a fresh and shapely hedge again next year.

I generally have trouble germinating tiny seeds but I already have several inch tall seedlings and am optimistic of success.
