The photo at the top shows a three
month old Elfin Thyme plant that was started in early spring from
one of our 2 3/4 inch containers. By the end of the first season it measured about 4 inches across.
On the left, the same Elfin Thyme plant
at the end of the following year. This is actually two plants that have grown together.
Like all thymes if it has something to climb up, it will. Filling in the
space with dirt, so the thyme may be planted level with the stones, will
provide a smoother, flatter look.
