Thompson and Morgan Oregano 1500 seeds
A herb with gloriously sweet smelling, aromatic foliage, Oregano can be used either fresh or dry for flavouring a variety of tasty dishes. Try sprinkling Oregano on lamb or pork before cooking – delicious. Did you know the flowers produced in summer and autumn can also be used for flavouring, once they have been gently dried.
Oregano makes the ideal companion plant; plant oregano among broccoli to repel the cabbage butterfly.
