Creeping thyme is an evergreen shrub that spreads to form a carpet, giving off a strong aroma when trodden on. It has tiny, finely hairy, mid-green leaves on wiry, trailing stems, and it's covered in masses of tiny purple flowers in summer. Bees love these flowers. Try planting it in crevices in paving
Thyme is best suited either to the rock garden or the front of a border. Sometimes it is grown between paving stones; it is highly aromatic and when trodden on its scent is intensified.
Thyme is a good companion plant to cabbage as it helps to deter cabbage worms.
