How to grow oregano

We use oregano at least once week to flavour our homemade meals.
Here is how to grow this easy herb in your garden: 
  • Use oregano (Origanum vulgare) as a groundcover to suppress weeds in dry areas.
  • It self-seeds readily, so you'll find it easy to propagate.
  • Dried oregano is stronger than fresh.
  • Plant in well-drained soil in garden beds or a quality open potting mix in pots.
  • Oregano is tolerant of dry conditions and full sun.
  • Keep well pruned and use vigorous growth tips in cooking the older leaves are slightly bitter.
