How To Grow Create your own Thyme Lawn by sowing a mix of seed and sand blended together. We provide you with a 25 gram package of Thyme seed, enough to sow 150 sq. metre or (1600 sq. ft.) of lawn. You provide the play sand (available from the local nursery, garden centre). Why sand you ask? Well thyme seed size is very small and blends best with sand for easier spreading. Mix seed/sand together in a fertilizer spreader and broadcast evenly over the area. Keep moist and be patient, germination may require up to 30 days and sometimes longer. Between flagstone for a walkway, mix seed and sand together and sprinkle or brush into cracks between stones as early in the spring as possible. Our experience has shown that it loves the cold/damp conditions of early April. Thyme once established competes well with weeds. Freshly exposed soil is often loaded with weed seeds. You will need to diligently remove weeds during the first and second seasons. Simply mowing will deter many taller annual weeds such as pigweed. Physical removal is best for low growing weeds such as crabgrass, dandelion and plantain.
