Oregano is a very attractive and aromatic herb. Oregano tends to grow in a neat, compact, and bush-like shape.  It is also quite manageable in containers as well. Oregano is very complimentary in meat dishes as well as Italian, Mediterranean, and tomato dishes.  

USE and STORAGE:

As you harvest, the more it will bush out and produce! (HINT: instead of pinching a leaf at a time, try pinching the stem, ¼ inch from the next set of leaf nodes. This encourages the plant to bush out more) Flavor intensifies after flowering.

 

Great for Italian, pizza, or pasta dishes.  Can add to your store bought sauces for more flavor!! Very delicious.  Used in soups, vegetable cooking, on chicken, fish, and other meat dishes

 

Oregano may be used:

1. immediately after harvest,

2. Set in a flower vase in a well lit room. Change water every so often.

3. Oregano may be dried for multi-purposes later in the winter months
