Oregano

Ancient Egypt’s great healing herb. Oregano has a sweet aromatic flavour. Its slightly bitter overtone makes it an ideal herb in Italian and Spanish-style dishes.

Position

Full sun.

Sow

Direct. Cover with fine soil or Yates Seed Raising Mix. Firm down and keep moist. Later thin to 50cm apart.

Care

Choose a sunny, well-drained position. Keep well watered and free from weeds. Ideal for planting in tubs or large pots. Protect from snails with Yates Blitzem. Hint: Meat loaves, sauces, stews and stuffings will benefit from a touch of oregano.
