Variegated Oregano Growing Information
Plant Variegated Oregano in well-drained soil in a sunny to partly shaded position. As Variegated is a more tender variety than others, protect from intense heat and very cold weather. It is also less invasive than other varieties. Harvest the leaves as and when required. You can chew the leaves, add them to an infusion or make your own Oregano Oil, adding a few drops to a glass of water.
