Questions & Answers

Is this plant resistant to foot traffic? I am looking for something to alternate between pavers to make a walkway.

Can you walk on it without damaging the plant?

Veronica or speedwell grow between pavers well

Need to cover a 40 x 8 ft slope on front (N facing) lawn to stop erosion -- is this a good choice? AND -- how many plants should I purchase to get coverage over the next 2-3 years?
Asked by: Fuzz
Hello, thank you for your question. Thyme is quite pretty but lacks the root structure necessary for erosion control. English ivy, vinca, or creeping junipers may be better choices.

Hello, the Thyme can be planted spring to fall but before winter sets in. Just keep well watered during first growing season.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from look great Last year I bought creeping phlox for a small garden. I wanted something that would cover and look beautiful I was not disappointed at all! The plants when I purchase them at the store they had great root systems and looked very healthy. A year later they are growing and spreading just like i wanted very happy with my purchase

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Time for Red Thyme! I live in Florida in the Tampa Bay area and let me tell you it is HOT!! We are in the midst of a very serious, long term drought as are many others in our country. Due to the watering restrictions in my county I am only able to water my garden once a week and that puts much pressure on blooming plants both perennials and annuals. When my garden goes green (and believe me, I deadhead for longer lasting blossoms), I rely on colorful drought, resistant ground covering to play center stage. One of my very favorites is the creeping red thyme because of its beauty, resilience and low maintenance. I started with a very few plants that I placed in between border shrubbery and mixed them with some low maintenance peonies and impatiens and I have the most wonderful mixture of color and balance as they have subtly allowed me my summer garden. Now my greenery is not the sore spot of my garden in the hot summer months, but the accent to a garden grown delight. I heartily recommend creeping red thyme to any gardener who wishes to accent a dieing summer garden using the smallest investment providing the highest yield.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not to healthy Looking. I'm going to be surprised if they even make it through the next few months. I ordered four. Small compact stiff. Not green and lush like others I had gotten store bought. The ones in the store where healthy and cheaper and bigger plants these where small and look like they are drying up and about eady to die I'm very disappointed. These plants are not cheap. I got burnt . Will no longer buy live plants online from here again
