Hi, my husband bought several small 6packs of thyme which we are going to use as stepable ground cover in between stepping stones. He bought all of our plants and the work is not done in the yard yet. He didn't know that you plant the plants last. Really???? Lol so I asked him to plant them temporarily and we will take them from the ground when the hardscape work is done and we are ready to plant. So I went to check on them and he had planted all the 6packs as 1 plant. Really? So all the roots of the individual plants are going to grow together. Are we going to be able to cut the thyme root balls when we are ready or do I need to go out, and separate them niw, before they start growing? Thanks very much. Debbie
