thank you to who ever told me creeping thyme WS well

karendee(5WestOFChicago)March 13, 2010

Now I have a lot of tiny creeping thyme sprouts. I am so very happy. CT is one of my favorites. I asked about it here last season but never sowed. I bought seeds from cheap seeds (2 packs for about $3 each) they had tons of seeds and I think I sowed at least a dozen containers.

I plan to edge flowerbeds and put it between stones. I am so very exctied this seed sprouted for me I just had to share!!

I will post pics when it stops raining. I can't get over how well they germinated. One container is so full I can tell I over sowed.

WS'ing makes me so very happy!!!

they were sown on 1/10/2010 and 1/31/2010. The 1/31 one is a large water cooler bottle stuck where I cannot peek so it may not have sprouted. However the sprouts are really tiny! They may even be close to true set of leaves! I am so surprised.

Next year I am gonna sow Creeping thyme and Ruds mostly. They are my favorites!

That's the same one I bought. Thousands of seeds in that pack. And if anyone got some in the swap or trade with me, those are the same ones. I haven't found mine yet, so I don't know if they've germinated. Going to be doing another check today for germinated containers.

I ws a small amount of creeping thyme a few years ago and have not had to again as it spreads rapidly and self seeds so I've always had plenty to move to new spots and share with others.

Some varieties of creeping thyme do not spread as much or make as much seed. I have some very low growing ones that are almost flat to the soil.

I got my creeping thyme from CheapSeeds also and have had excellent germination - I did 2 milkjugs and didn't even put a dent in the package - I am going to do more jugs tonight - one can never have too much thyme :) lol ......

I direct sowed a lot of mine. Haven't noticed any sprouts yet, but I sowed a lot of stuff last week before the rains. I do have poppies up. That was quick.

wow, poppies already? that is quick. Our ground here is ust soaked. Anything I direct sow would have plenty of water :)

I guess I should direct sow some things for fun.

I just love thyme and it is so expensive pre-grown the last 6 pack I bought of plants was $10. It was one of those large ones but still too much $$.
I think I saved a bundle just on CT seeds instead of plants. I plan to add a patio with CT in the cracks. We already have it between stepping stones but it is wolly thyme. I think the cheapseeds is mother of thyme since the flowers are pink.
