Growing Organic Oregano in the Highveld of South Africa

organic oregano

Oregano is probably most famous for being the herb used most on pizzas. It has a lovely smell that is quite strong, simply watering it is enough to release the scent. Oregano is a spreading herb, it grows tall and then sort of leans over and where it touches the ground it will make new roots and so it spreads. It needs a lot of water and the leaves will curl in a little when it is thirsty. It likes a sunny position – mine is in the sunniest spot in the garden – but because of the intense sun it does need to be watered almost every day during the hottest parts of summer.
