Oregano means "Italian cooking" to Americans, but is even more diverse than we think. Sure, it's a must on pizza, in spaghetti sauce, and the rest, but in the garden, one of the best things about it is the flowers--they're beautiful, and dry beautifully for pot pourris.
When and Where to Plant: Select a sunny location and sow seed
after all danger of frost has passed. Cultivate soil and enrich with
vegetable food. Grows well in containers, indoors and out. For
earlier harvest start seeds indoors. Firm soil over seed.
Care: Responds well to trimming. Pinch tops to encourage branching.
Harvesting: Flavor is best before plant blooms. Pick leaves as
needed and use fresh or dry. Leaves may be frozen.
