Oregano 'Gold Splash'(Origanum 'Gold Splash') Herb in 9cm Pot

Oregano 'Gold Splash' or wild marjoram as it is also known is an extremely aromatic herb that has gold-splashed green leaves that look their best in Spring. Grown primarily for its culinary use this variety also makes an attractive foliage plant, and will form a spreading mound, ideal for the front of a border in your herb garden or herbaceous border, a rock or gravel garden, it's also happy in a container.

Native to the Mediterranean and Southern Europe, growing  to 15cm tall and preferring light well-drained soil,  It is a low growing spread herb with bright green leaves and pink flowers. Gold Splash prefers a sunny site and does not particularly enjoy prolonged wet winters, it prefers a sunny site and 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

Curly Golden 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.

    Shame about packaging

    Posted by Marion Gray on 5th Jun 2020

    The plants I ordered were lovely but unfortunately due to the way they were packaged they were transported on their side so were squashed and compost had fallen out.Bit of a mess to unpack luckily plants recovered.
