    So few seeds- so much area to cover....

    We have an area where we got rid of our water thirsty grass, I had hoped this would be enough to cover where other creeping type of thyme I replaced the grass with (about 3+ yrs. ago) had died of didn't grow (bare spots) but these tiny packets of seed didn't come close. They did sprout in one of the bare spots I planted them in, but I needed a lot more, so I bought 2 flats (already growing) that were all left at Lowes and planted them just this week. I think that something people plant as a ground cover ought to come in a bigger package, not just a tiny pinch. If you put it in a ground cover size package I might consider buying it again, but like it is not likely.

    germination

    I had some trouble with germination. I do not know if it was my fault or the seeds. My daughter ordered many seeds from you this year( we share a garden space) and some of her seeds did not germinate at all.
