Growing Thyme, also Common thyme

The direct 'burning heat' of the sun is your problem. Give your plants a cover, at head height or a little more (so that you can comfortably work under the shade) with WHITE 50 % shade cloth. It will cost a little bit (not too much) to build or string up a frame and to use the shade cloth as a cover, but you will not regret it. This makes a world of difference. All the best, Bob.
