Answer: Glad you like the website. Thyme plants prefer well draining soils and clay tends to hold lots of moisture. If you are careful with your watering (remembering that clay holds water) your thyme should be happy in your native soil. If you're unsure about your soil and have access to some builder's sand you can amend the planting area with a little sand to help the roots stay a little drier. Just mix a little sand into the top 2-3 inches of soil. That's where the roots of your thyme will concentrate. Hope this helps you decide what to do with the soil before you plant your new plants.
