Have you or someone you know successfully established a thick patch of thyme on a lawn or walkway? What advice can you offer?
My research says that transplants should be put 6 to 12 inches apart. Seeding your own transplants would be much cheaper.
They like a lot of compost, and potassium, so wood ash is good to add. It was also said that if doing a large area, you should start in one patch and take clumps of that patch and expand outwards.
to prepare the ground you must remove the sod, (which can be done by plowing, or covering with tarps, clear plastic, or some other form of solarization), and add amendments, (can be worked into the soil or left on the surface)
Plant, water, observe, adapt?
