Hi... I have planted three thyme plants in a pot with a dwarf peach tree. I find that all three plants have developed dead spots around the centre of the plant. I feel that I am over watering the palnts. Any ideas, please? Greg

Thyme likes to be fairly dry, so you are probably right about overwatering. Save a few cuttings and try again
