Oregano 'Acorn Bank' (Origanum vulgare 'Acorn Bank') Herb in 9cm Pot 

Oregano 'Acorn Bank' is an extremely aromatic herb, with oval, pointed golden yellow leaves and a mound forming nature, it has pretty pink flowers in the summer.  Native to the Mediterannean and Southern Europe, Oregano is closely related to marjoram. Growing 45-60cm tall and preferring light well-drained soil, Oregano prefers a sunny site and does not particularly enjoy prolonged wet winters, but its hardy nature means can remain evergreen through the winter months if the weather is particularly clement.

Herb Usage

Oregano has a pungent flavour and features heavily in Mediterranean and Mexican food. It has a great affinity for a variety of foods, especially strong flavours like wine, olives and tomatoes, vegetables, stuffing and egg dishes. It is also characteristic of many Greek dishes (particularly lamb). Oregano's flavour is enhanced with drying and is often sprinkled liberally on pizzas.
