How to Grow Herbs


Oregano is best grown from cuttings. Pull your cuttings off the mature woody stems, dip the ends into a bit of hormone growth powder and plant them in wet sand. Make sure the sand is well drained.

Normally your Oregano plants only need watering once a week but during hot weather you can water it twice weekly.

Oregano is a great companion for your green peppers, paprika, brinjals and green beans.

As a Kitchen Herb

Oregano tastes good in most dishes, from pizza, pasta, meat and fish dishes to stir fries and soups.

As Medicinal Herb

A sprig of Oregano will help ease toothache, sweeten bad breath and clear mouth infections.
