Oregano, an herb with a robust scent and flavor, loves to grow in pots where it can spill over an edge of a pot or low wall. However, its trailing growth also makes it a good seasonal ground cover, or it can serve as a nice edging along a path. Oregano prefers a sunny spot and well-drained soil. Small plants in containers can be moved indoors for the winter. Cut out dead stems in the spring before the plants begin new growth.
