Oregano herb is a culinary staple and has a distinctive flavor profile all its own. Oregano can be grown indoors as a part of a kitchen window sill herb garden or field grown returning year after year as a hardy perennial in the garden if the roots are left intact and not disturbed. Easy to upkeep, Oregano is most prolific when regularly harvested and dried. A commonly used herb in Italian dishes and sauces, Oregano is a wonderful compliment to gravies, meat dishes and sautees. Known to be a natural insect repellent, Oregano makes a wonderful companion planting in garden beds of other plant varieties to keep unwanted insect pressure at bay.
