Oregano Compact (Origanum vulgare 'Compactum') Herb in 9cm Pot

Compact Oregano or Origanum vulgare Compactum is an extremely aromatic dwarf herb, with dark green leaves and a mound forming nature. Grown primarily for its culinary use this variety also makes an attractive foliage plant, and will form a spreading mound, it is a really pretty plant too as from midsummer to autumn it is covered with clusters of tiny, pale pink flowers. Ideal for the front of a border in your herb garden or herbaceous border, a rock or gravel garden,great as an edging plant and good ground cover,  it's also happy in a container.

Native to the Mediterranean and Southern Europe, growing  to 15cm tall, Compact Oregano prefers a sunny site and does not particularly enjoy prolonged wet winters, and as such likes a well-drained soil add some grit when planting to help with this if your soil is particularly heavy. It's hardy nature means can remain evergreen through the winter months, if not it will some form a bushy compact plant again in spring.  

Herb Usage

Compact Oregano is an aromatic herb, whose flavour features heavily in Mediterranean and Mexican food, as it has a great affinity for a variety of foods, especially bold flavours like tomatoes,  olives and meats like lamb. It works well in stuffing mixes and egg dishes, too. Oregano is closely related to marjoram, and is also present in many Greek dishes (particularly those featuring lamb). Oregano's flavour is enhanced with drying and is often sprinkled liberally on pizzas.
