I tried to sow Creeping Thyme as grass alternative last August. I dug few inches off the existing clay soil, I added chicken manure and one layer of compost, 10-15cm of westland nutrient rich top soil, then seeds mixed with sand all around the garden but it wouldn’t germinate (weeds are doing great though…!). I have a few questions now: What shall I do to stop weeds from spreading (I was thinking to throw granular weed killer once a month)? Anything you would advice to do, before I try again next spring?
