Has anyone tried/succeeded in growing a chamomile/thyme/similar type lawn?

Any tips?

flowering rose

I tried but it failed,I think my clay soil did not help and i also tried to make chamomile seat but that didt work either.

Take a look at buntysblog.co.uk. She has made a video showing how it's done.

It looks like one big headache to me.

There's not much other than grass that you can walk/play/sit on and still have a lawn.

Perhaps these other plantings shouldn't be called lawns.

Does anyone grow the 'micro clover', it was the new big thing a few years ago, don't hear anything about it anymore.

is that the one that got tinier and tinier until nobody could see it?

Peat Ballan posted a thread called herbal lawns, he was starting a project the same as yours, you could have a look at that or message him to see how he got on.

I think so, I came in late and missed it altogether

That's beautiful Sara, a work of art. Not what I'd call a lawn though. 

SilverFairy has never come back on this one.Don't know if she wants something lovely like this or something she can walk on.

It makes it easier but if you highlight and alternate click you get 'go to http.....'

Depends on device & browser, nut.  Pressing enter makes them active in anything.

I'm pretty ignorant on all this stuff Bob, I just fiddle around til something works for me. I was going to copy and paste when the other solution came up

SilverFairy

Maybe I will try growing it between paving stones first! and we have a bench over some sleepers that have started to rot so lots of gaps I can put earth into. Would this be successful?

Thanks for all the answers folks

If I do that would you suggest seeds or plugs?

 

MrsGarden

Sounds a very good idea, which plants were you going for, was it camomile or a variety of different ones?  

SilverFairy

They will get walked over thats why i wanted something scented. Id like a mixture

nutcutlet

How much walking over will they get? Grass is used for lawns because it can cope with that
