Herb Container Gardening

Herb Container Gardening

Last summer, I lived with my parents, and had a lush, gorgeous garden. I planted herbs directly in the ground, and they flourished. This year, I'm on my own, and renting, so I'm container gardening. My herbs are definitely NOT flourishing. My thyme, in particular, is kind of dying. I know one of the main issues with container herbs is overwatering, and so I'm trying to be really conscious about that. Any other tips/tricks in terms of herb container gardening?
