Oregano is best planted in a well-drained soil of sand, chalk or loam within an acidic, alkaline or neutral pH balance. It is best positioned in a sheltered area of full sun or part shade. Oregano is well suited to being planted in beds, borders and containers in a variety of different garden styles.

Plant once the risk of frost has passed. Ensure the soil is well-drained by amending with sand or grit to aid in water drainage.
Water when the soil feels dry to the touch, being careful not to overwater as the roots may rot. Trim back growth once flowers have faded in summer to keep the plant compact and to avoid them becoming leggy. Cut back any dead stems to the base in winter and provide them with a winter mulch. Leaves taste their best before flowering.
It is possible to propagate Oregano by seed or by division in autumn or spring.
