Also known as wild thyme or Breckland thyme.

Thyme lawns are seldom seen these days which is a shame. In the Edwardian era they were very popular – and rightly so, as they make a really lovely lush green 'carpet' of foliage which releases its sweet thyme aroma when crushed underfoot. In midsummer, delicate pretty pink flowers dot the surface, making the lawn all the prettier.

Thriving in full sun and drier soils, an established thyme lawn will always fare better than conventional grass in times of drought; and needing just a couple of trims a year it is also less labour-intensive to keep tidy!

Recommended by the RHS to be an excellent attractant and nectar source for bees and other beneficial insects.

  • Prefers a well drained soil, and most certainly should not be planted in waterlogged conditions.
  • Plant 6" x 6" (15 x 15 cm) apart - that's 36 plants per square metre to metric people (or you can divide up our chunky plug plants and grow on in small pots before planting out).
  • Ensure weed growth is kept under control until the lawn is well established.
  • Will happily take moderate foot traffic - but would not be suitable for excessive use by boisterous young children or pets.
  • Walking on should be avoided when the ground beneath is laying very wet.
  • Has creeping stems of approximately 4" (10 cm) long which should be encouraged to spread to grow tall.
  • Not suitable for areas where dogs may foul as their mess will kill it where it falls!
