 o
thyme question

I planted this thyme last year. It looks great except for in a few spots where some branches are pretty dried looking. Should I just cut the whole dry branch back at once or snip a little off here and there to rejuvenate it? I want to make sure I can grow this to its full potential. It looks so great in the garden I'd love to do it right and keep it going strong!

Thanks in advance

Parts will die- off over winter. I just use a tiny nosed pruner and cut out the dead parts.
