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 and makes a great companion plant to anyone in the vegetable garden. Allow oregano plants to grow to about 4" tall and then pinch or trim lightly to encourage a denser and bushier plant. Regular trimming will not only cause the plant to branch again, but also avoid legginess. You can harvest the leaves as you need them, however the most flavourful leaves will be found right before the flowers bloom.
