Looking after your plants....
If you cut back oregano at the end of the year, and keep it in a nice sheltered, sunny spot it will do well.
Be careful not to over water – oregano is used to dry conditions.
Pinch off flowers
Pick off flower heads as they appear to keep the leaves tasting good (they tend to get a bit more bitter once the plant has flowered)
Oregano is a classic Mediterranean herb that works really well with dishes from its homeland.
