The Fragrant Ground Cover That Knocks Out Weeds From The Garden Bed
Ground covers look gorgeous and help keep weeds out. Of these, creeping thyme is a great addition to any garden because it’s easy to grow
and sports fragrant
purple blooms.
Creeping thyme’s thick, dense mat chokes out any weeds that might try to grow. It works best in an area with full sun and should be planted in the spring after the last frost.
While creeping thyme can tolerate most soils, it prefers well-draining, slightly alkaline ones. Keep the soil moist until it is established, then reduce watering to every 10 days.
Disease and pest-resistant, creeping thyme only requires minimal pruning to manage its spread after the first year and minimal cuts in the spring and summer to promote new growth.
