Why We Love It

Thyme 'Creeping Red' really gets to work with its pink red flowers that come out in abundance in early summer above a dense mat of baby bronze evergreen leaves, fragrant when you brush your hands over them.

Yes - this herb is as attractive in the garden as it is useful in the kitchen and growing it in pots or at the front of a bed comes recommended.

Planting and Care

This herb will grow quite happily in shallow rubbly soil, if it gets enough sun.

Into the Ground

  1. Dig a hole to at least double the width of the plant's rootball.
  2. Mix in some well-rotted compost or soil.
  3. Insert your plant, lining up the top of the rootball with the surface of the soil.
  4. Backfill around the roots and water it well.

Into a Pot

  1. Pour a small amount of compost into the bottom of your chosen container.
  2. Put the plant in place and then back-fill soil around the rootball.
  3. Lightly water after repotting.
  4. The soil should be just damp enough that if you press your forefinger into the soil it is moist above the top of your nail.
  5. Regularly check the soil is moist but not soaking or sitting in water.
