Description

Oregano is a perennial a small evergreen sub shrub in mild climates . The flowers are small and borne in clusters; they range in colour from white to pink or pale purple.

Its compact oval leaves are arranged oppositely and are covered with glandular trichomes (plant hairs). The young stems are typically square and hairy and become woody with age.

Sage also known as 'Wild Marjoram' taste is zesty and strong and is commonly used in Italian dishes. It is a hardy plant and makes for a good ground cover.

Environment

Oregano performs well in part to full sun, but the flavors intensify when it receives a full day of sunshine. Oregano will grow well indoors, but it is important that the plant receives adequate heat and sunshine in order to grow.The plant needs a well-drained soil.

Oregano doesn t need quite as much water as most herbs. Just water when the soil feels dry to the touch. Water thoroughly and less often.

Plant oregano eight to 10 inches apart in the garden. Oregano grows up to two feet tall and spans about 18 inches across. Oregano is a prolific grower, hence If in a container, be sure the pot is about 12 inches in diameter;

To obtain the optimum potency of flavor, harvest oregano leaves just before the plant flowers, if this can be timed perfectly. Even the subtly flavored flowers are great topped on salads.

Allow oregano plants to grow to about 4 inches tall and then pinch or trim lightly to encourage a denser and bushier plant. Regular trimming will not only cause the plant to branch again, but also avoid legginess.

Landscape Uses

Oregano herb makes a good evergreen ground cover.


Although each type of herb has its own growing requirements, most herbs are unfussy plants. They prefer full sun and prosper in good, moderately fertile soil. And most require that the soil be well-drained.

Water the plants everyday and keep the soil moist. Make sure excess water is drained out. Trim the plants in the summers to keep them in good shape. You can keep the herbs on a kitchen windowsill provided you are getting good sunlight there.

Potted herb plants are sensitive to sun and naturally grow towards the source of sunlight. They might start to lean after some time so make sure to rotate the pot in different direction.
