Thyme - Is it too late?

Ive had this Thyme plant for about 3-4 years, i think it may be time to start again.

Is there anything i can do to "revive" it?

    Is that moss in the soil? The soil looks very damp looking. Thyme needs free draining soil in a sunny spot. Heavy soils and excess wet will slowly kill them. I would start again, so many varieties in the garden centres.

    Maybe you could try using the live bit for cuttings.
    The thyme has passed for the rest of it.

    I thought the question was “Time, is it too late?” 

    In which case, it’s never too late.

    But in the case of “This thyme, is it too late? “ I would say yes. It is.

    Definitely, it won’t grow back from the dead wood so save your time and buy another one. If you keep them chopped back when the stems are still young you can keep the new one going longer, maybe. I find thyme worse than rosemary or lavender for just dying off so just replace them when they have gone over. Use gritty soil and let the surface dry out between moderate watering.

    Yes, it has ceased to be, it is an ex thyme. Thyme has passed, etc. Sorry. :blush:
