Thymus-Thyme or Creeping Thyme

Propagating thyme by division should be done in the spring versus the fall because frost can cause the plants to rise out of the ground freeze so propagating is done by digging the whole plant up and dividing the crown and also they become woody so replacement should be done every 3-4 years. Depending upon the variety, the heights can range from 1-10" and the summer blooms can range from purple to white to red to pink and thyme also keeps the deer at bay. Best planted in a sunny location, but will even take deep shade and is one of the groundcovers that does not mind foot traffic but enjoys a good humus soil
