Care for thyme on the balcony
Thyme will do just fine in a box or decorative pot. As a perennial plant, it can also overwinter, but not on a balcony, but we still recommend frostproof pots which you put in a cool, bright room in the autumn. As far as the soil is concerned, think light and sandy. Thyme will do well in a sunny position, where it grows beautifully. So be sure to water it regularly, preferably in the morning or evening, never in the middle of the day!
