Q.Thyme Is Dying And Turning Brown, What Do I Do?

Zone 92057 | blackthumbgardener added on June 9, 2020 | Answered

This is my first time growing thyme and after a few day’s my thyme plant looked dead with some green leaves growing from the center. Is it overwatered, too dry, bad soil? I’ve included pictures of before and after. And I did trim away a lot of the dead thyme.
