We grow this for beautiful, scented carpets on the edges of our Dutch Yard, picking the flowers for salads, and allowing it to creep, tight to the brick and ground, wherever it wants. Famously, it takes a little walking on too.
Thyme is pretty drought-tolerant, but new plants will need extra care so they do not dry out.
