For zones 3-9 Purple Creeping thyme is very easy to sow if you follow one rule - only sow them when your temperatures will be in the 60 - 70 range. Thyme will not germinate in temperatures much above 70 so it's best to sow them in very early spring or over winter in pots.

These seeds are very tiny so it's best to use the shaker method and mix your seeds with sand to spread, or mix your packet with 4 cups of peat and spread in your garden area.

In very early spring enrich your garden soil 6" deep and distribute your seeds and top with a very light dusting of peat as creeping thyme needs light to germinate.   Keep moist until germination.

You can also start creeping thyme in pots 8 weeks before your last frost in the spring and transplant into your garden after your last frost.  As above spread on the surface of your potting material and lightly dust with sand or vermiculite. Keep your pot/tray (with holes in the bottom) in a tray containing about 1" of water and cover lightly with plastic wrap. Keep your pot/tray under lights until germination. Thyme need a cool and moist environment to germinate.

ONCE AGAIN - Thyme will not germinate in hot weather so if you miss a winter or early spring cut off save them and sow them once your weather stays near 70 degrees for a couple of weeks. If it is summer and you want to germinate them your will have to sow them in pots inside your house, and under lights, to maintain a cool environment.
