Magic Carpet Thyme

Seeds germinated easily and were transplanted without difficulty. Using between stepping stones. Doing well despite hot weather,

small amount but good germination rate

Not many seeds per packet, but they had a good germination rate. I should get 5 good spots of thyme from the packet, and they will spread.

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.

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.
