What would kill German Thyme in just a few days?
I have a German thyme and rosemary planted in the same galvanized aluminum tub (its small, not the old wash your dog in a tub size.) Before planting them I punched about 15 holes in the bottom with a roofing nail.
A few days ago I harvested quite a bit of thyme but made sure to leave plenty of green and soft stems attached. The plant seemed to be fine. Then we had 3 solid days of rain. Our area has had an obscene amount of rain this year but the thyme seemed to be handling it ok.
On day 3 of rain, I moved the thyme under a ledge so it could dry out a bit. Then next morning 2/3 of it had turned to dark, bare wood. All the roots still seem well attached and the rosemary is just fine so I doubt it's water but maybe so.
I there any way to salvage the plant? Please excuse my drowning chamomile, it's the one bin I failed to punch holes in.
