Buy The Highgrove thyme collection The Highgrove thyme collection (6 mixed thymes): Create an aromatic carpet - or fill pots on a sunny patio

    The Highgrove Thyme Walk is one of the most admired areas of the garden. It is home to a wide variety of thymes, which have been woven together to create a carpet that spills over the edges of the hard landscaping, emitting a delicious aroma when crushed underfoot. In summer, when in full bloom, their scent intensifies, and the carpet become multicoloured, attracting many bees and other pollinating insects. It is quite a treat to see on such a dramatic scale, but it is possible to recreate the effect in a smaller garden - and this collection will make an ideal starting point as it contains 6 different unlabelled thymes.

  • Planting tip: Plant in a sunny position in freely draining neutral to alkaline soil. Although tolerant of drought once established, they should be kept well watered for the first year or so. After flowering, cut back vigorous varieties to retain a neat compact shape.

    The plants are all supplied in 9cm pots.

    20% of all Highgrove garden collection sales are donated to The Prince of Wales's Charitable Foundation.

How far apart should I plant these and when should i plant them?

Hello, These are fully hardy so can be planted out at any time of the year (provided the ground is not frozen). As for the planting distances, it really depends onthe effect you are trying to create. If you are happy for them too intermingle, then I would advise planting them at 30cm intervals.
