Creeping thyme is beautiful! Can it be used the same as regular Thyme? I know that the wild ginger has shown to have negative effects on the liver, and generally better to stay way from eating... - - Not that I plan on planting edibles only. But nice to know what can be used.
Also a question regarding design, would there be a benifit to raising the whole planting area?, I could do it as a raised bed, allowing a clean seperation from the kids recreational area (lawn) from the garden. In my mide it would also provide better drainage, and might allow better layering of herbs, plants (like comphrey), shrubs and trees.... - It might help to move irragation aswell. I plan to have a water storage tank for rook run off....
