Creeping Thyme dead? I planted five of these plants from a flat, and now none of them look good. I watered once when planted, then held off from watering because we have had a wet couple of weeks. One is completely brown. Is there any hope for these, will they come back or should I cut my losses and plant something new?

I know this comment is a bit late, but it may help you out the next time. It sounds like they might have been rootbound when you planted them. If so, the watering did little good as the water just passed around the clump of roots and none was absorbed by the plant. Next time make sure to loosen or 'fluff out' the roots a bit before planting and if they're really dry soak them in a shallow container of water for a few minutes before popping them in the ground. If they turn brown again try pruning them - take off most of the dead growth but be sure to leave a couple of inches of stem at the base. Good luck!
