Creeping Thyme and Edge Effect
digging out the fruit bushes. I'm thinking of pre-empting this tendency with Thymus serpyllum, planted around the edges of all the paths, between the slabs and the bricks. It's a good bee plant, can cope with a being stood on, and should be able to take care of itself vis-a-vis the weeds. I recall a gardening programme on TV or the wireless doing a wee trial to find the best plant for a non-grass lawn, and creeping thyme won it hands down over lawn chamomile.
