how to prune last summer's thyme
Now that Spring is here, I've been cleaning out the little (2' by 5') garden bed in front of my house. I'm not sure what to do with they thyme form last year -- it's basically just a bunch of woody stems with last year's leaves still on. I almost decided just to cut it back nearly to the ground and hope for the best, but thought I'd check here for advice first. I'm not an experienced or dedicated gardener -- I just have the little front bed and a small backyard in the city -- but I've been trying to make things as nice as possible. Thanks!
