Answer: Thyme seems to thrive on abuse, but don't let that stop you from providing reasonably good conditions in your garden. All plants appreciate loose, well-draining soil, so amending it with organic matter before planting is a good idea. Rosemary is another rugged plant that will grow in poor soil, but good drainage is a must. Organic matter will lighten the soil and help improve the drainage in your clay-like soil. Both rosemary and thyme will look best if given water on a regular basis. The prostrate dwarf rosemary grows to about 2' feet tall with a 4' - 8' foot spread will probably fit your needs as a ground cover.
