The aromatic flowers of the Orange Balsam Thyme Plant

Orange Balsam Thyme should be pruned back by about a third after bloom. This is easiest if the thyme stems are gathered by the fistful, snipping many at one time. 

Orange Balsam Thyme Plants Flowering in Spring

Notice how beautifully the Orange Balsam Thyme spills through the garden. This is a swath about four feet long and two feet wide. As you can see, it is a loosely organized plant that works well here clambering up the side of White Grosso Lavender and flowing under the new reddish shoots of Pink Gaura.
