Origanum vulgare (Wild Oregano) 12cm Pot
€4.99 “Price excl. VAT: €4.99”
Oregano is an essential ingredient in many southern Mediterranean dishes, from pizza to pasta sauces, Greek salads and Spanish stews.
Also known as marjoram, oregano is one of the key plants in traditional herb gardens. It has medicinal as well as culinary uses – use it in teas to soothe digestive problems. In the past it’s also been used as an antiseptic.
With its compact leaves and often very ornamental flowers, oregano also makes a good creeping ground cover plant or an attractive filler for window boxes and containers.
Grow oregano in free-draining soil or compost in a sunny, sheltered spot. Harvest the leaves as and when you need to, cutting the plant back completely every so often to encourage a fresh flush of foliage. If growing in pots, repot every couple of years in fresh compost. Prevent water-logging in winter by adding grit to the planting hole.
