Q.Creeping Thyme And Wildflowers

Zone DY12 2PR | suzblu added on May 9, 2020 | Answered

Hi, I have bought 50 1 litre pots of creeping thyme to plant spaced out so they spread and create a lawn alternative, I know this is going to take at least a year to get coverage of the space. I think I know the answer is no but I wanted to check; can I sow wild flower seeds in the space at the same time to create a temporary fill while the thyme takes and starts to spread?
