Oregano 'Gold Shine' (Origanum vulgare 'Gold Shine')Herb in 9cm Pot 

Oregano 'Gold Shine' is an extremely aromatic golden-green herb, native to the Mediterranean and Southern Europe, Oregano is closely related to marjoram and is also known as Majoram 'Gold Shine'. It prefers a sunny site and does not particularly enjoy prolonged wet winters, but its hardy nature means it can remain evergreen through the winter months. Cut back old, flowered stems in early spring to obtain a new fresh flush of leaves and to maintain shape. Growing  20-40cm tall and preferring light well-drained soil, this variety has bright golden oval leaves which grow profusely on short purple/brown stems, and a very pretty show of white flowers appears in the summer. 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.
