I have never had any luck with thyme as it always dies on me. Any suggestions welcome. Hank

I'm in (sub-) tropical Barbados. Same here: My thyme dies after 2-3 months, leaves getting smaller, get lost, whole plant dries out. Tried different locations from sunny to shady - same result. I thought it might need regular cutting, but the instructions above say harvest sparely. What can we do?
