Oregano is easy to grow.

The plants grow best in full sun, and a well-drained soil and withstands droughts.

Water at least once a week during dry weather.

Pinch back the growing tips of the plant, to promote bushier growth. Pick flower buds as soon as they appear. The leaves turn bitter after the flowers bloom.

I use fresh oregano mainly in my bolognaise sauce.

It is my favourite herb and our garden is full of it.
