Magic Carpet Creeping Thyme 9 cm (3 1/2in) pot


Out of stock

Technically, this is not an orchard companion plant, but as the name implies, it is something to walk on. Magic Carpet forms a tight, ground-hugging mat to fill in pathways between raised beds. It tolerates trampling and drought, making it the ideal choice for a low, no-mow ground cover. Aromatic, evergreen foliage stays at 7 cm (2-3") tall and spreads to 40 cm (16") wide. Magic Carpet is adorned with masses of tiny, pink blossoms during the summer.

Pollenator definitions
Some trees and many berry plants are SELF-FERTILE ̶means the insect pollinators or even the wind can pollinate the blossoms without the need of a second tree.
NEEDS A POLLENIZER ̶ means another tree of the same type or kind but a different variety must be blooming nearby at the same time.
EXAMPLE A Liberty apple and a Wealthy apple can cross-pollinate. Two trees of the same variety ie: ̶ 2 Wealthy apples, cannot cross pollinate because they are genetically identical.
Other trees are marked as SEMI-FERTILE. These will set fruit without a second tree. However they will often bear more, and sometimes larger fruit if another variety of the same kind of tree is nearby.
You can select 2 different trees of the same kind marked as NEEDS A POLLENIZER or plant one of those along with one SELF-FERTILE or one SEMI-FERTILE. Also consider ripening times ̶ a Goldrush apple might not start blooming before a Pristine is finished.
