I just hate throwing (useful) stuff out.
You need to clip box hedges to keep them in shape and every clipping with some hardwood on it is a potential box bush.
Which is where these came from.
Take a while to get established, but it’s as easy as – get a bundle of 5 or so suitable subjects, pull away the leaves from the lower stem and put them in potting mix with some sharp grit mixed in for drainage.
They’ll root within a month or so and you can then heel them into a free patch of garden until they grow to a useful size.
Only takes 2 or 3 years, but I also grow herbs like the old farmer in the Provence so I’ve always got plenty of thyme…..
