Oregano, an herb with a robust scent and flavor, loves to grow in pots where it can spill over an edge of a pot or low wall. However, its trailing growth also makes it a good seasonal ground cover, or it can serve as a nice edging along a path. In late summer, enjoy Greek or Italian oregano’s white flowers against its bright-green leaves. Grow oregano in an herb garden or in containers.
Planting and care:
Most herbs don’t like much fertilizer; feed occasionally with some farmyard manure or compost throughout the growing season and always in early spring as the new season begins. Oregano spreads easily, cut it back to one-third of its size in order to make the plant bushier. In milder climates, oregano is evergreen. Cut out dead stems in the spring before the plants begin new growth.
Oregano adds deep flavour to Indian dishes, meat, fish, eggs, cheese, tomatoes, and vegetables such as beans and zucchini. A light sprinkling over a green salad before dressing it is a tasty enhancement. Oregano does not hold up well to prolonged cooking when used fresh, so add fresh leaves at the end of the cooking process or use dried leaves for sauces or anything that requires lengthy simmering.
