Growing Oregano, also Pot Marjoram

08 Mar 21 Marguerite (South Africa - Dry summer sub-tropical climate)
I propagated Oreganum from store bought. Here in Gordon's Bay it has flourished as a ground cover during winter and dry summer (I did have to water when they looked wilted for more than two days though). No flowers, so I'll see what the winter rains do this year. We have hydrophobic sand so it served well as a ground cover really vigorous growth, with sun until about 3pm.
