Thyme Lawn

I just started to grow about 1600 plants of thyme to transplant into my front garden.
See the process and the pictures on my Island Gardener blog.


Drought Smart Plants reply:

Wow, what an undertaking - a couple of questions - obviously you used seed - about how many seeds per cell?

- will you move this outside eventually? I find that thyme is perfectly hardy and loves to be outside.

- will the plugs be planted individually outside? What is the eventual spacing that you will use?

Good for you Marjorie - can't wait to see the finished lawn.

Hi Jacki,

I tried to seed the cells with 2 or 3 seeds each, but that was way to slow. So I ended up using a pinch of seeds per about 10 plugs and ended up with about 3 to 6 seeds in each. Much faster when I had to do about 1600 cells. They will eventually go outside but right now they are still too small and we did have frost last night, April 14th.
The spacing per plant will most likely be about one every 10" square or one every square foot depending on how many survive this experiment.

Hope that helps,
