Thyme is useful as a culinary herb and as a landscape plant. When properly pruned, this plant can grow into a low hedge. I have seen thyme planted close together and pruned to create formal Celtic knot gardens or used as a border and allowed to sprawl over edging rocks. Thyme should be pruned in the spring as soon as new growth starts to appear. Simply hold up the top and snip off the tips. Use the clippings to flavor soups. Thyme is fairly drought tolerant, but can handle a bit of dampness, as well.
