Will bulbs grow through creeping thyme?
Similarly, can I plant ground cover over bulbs?
Ground covers and bulbs make an even better marriage: Bulbs will grow right through the ground cover, bloom, then disappear from sight until the following year. Then add a layer of soil, and place medium-high bulbs directly over them; finally, another layer of soil and then small bulbs.
Beside above, can thyme be used as ground cover? Thymes are versatile, colorful, and fragrant plants, offering masses of delicate, starlike flowers. Tuck a thyme into a dry wall, stone walkway, or rock garden. Use it as a ground cover or as an edging for a perennial border. These hardy little plants add swaths of color and fragrance in unexpected places.
Additionally, how quickly does creeping thyme spread?
The less space between leaves, the slower your thyme will spread. Longer segments mean faster growth. Generally, creeping thyme takes one year to get established, and then begins to spread in its second season.
How do you propagate creeping thyme?
Cut 4 to 6 inches off the top of a thriving creeping thyme in the spring. Cut through a set of leaves or leaf node. Remove the leaves from the bottom half of the thyme cutting. Insert the cutting in a small pot filled with moist, coarse sand, or a good, quality potting mix.
