Growing oregano in a terracotta pot

In The Garden
Oregano, an herb with a robust scent and flavor, loves to grow in pots where it can spill over an edge of a terracotta 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. In late summer, enjoy Greek or Italian oregano’s white flowers against its bright-green leaves. Grow oregano in an herb garden or in round terracotta pot.

Soil, Planting, And Care
Oregano prefers a sunny spot; however, in zone 7 and farther south, it benefits from a little afternoon shade. Set plants in well-drained soil with a pH between 6.5 and 7.0. Most herbs don’t like much fertilizer; feed occasionally with Bonnie Herb, Vegetable & Flower Plant Food throughout the growing season and always in early spring as the new season begins. Oregano spreads easily; in late spring, cut it back to one-third of its size in order to make the plant bushier. In milder climates (zone 8 and southward), oregano is evergreen. In zone 7 and northward, protect plants with mulch through the winter, or cover them with a cold frame. Small plants in containers can be moved indoors for the winter. Cut out dead stems in the spring before the plants begin new growth.

Troubleshooting
Root rot, spider mites, and aphids can all attack oregano. Be sure oregano is well drained to prevent disease, and pick off any browning or spotted foliage. In the garden it is easy to mistake an oregano plant for look-alike sweet marjoram, although the two are easily distinguished by their flavors and scents.
Harvest And Storage
Harvest plants often for continued new growth. Begin by snipping sprigs of oregano as soon as the plant is several inches tall. The flavor of oregano is most intense in mid-summer, just before it blooms, making this the best time to harvest leaves for drying. This herb is stronger dried than fresh. For a big harvest, cut the stems just above the plant’s lowest set of leaves; this encourages new growth for the next cutting in late summer. Oregano leaves may be dried, frozen, or refrigerated.
The “secret” ingredient in Aunt Bee’s spaghetti sauce, oregano adds deep flavor to Italian or Greek dishes, meat, fish, eggs, cheese, tomatoes, and vegetables such as beans and zucchini. A light sprinkling over a green salad before dressing it is a tasty enhancement. Oregano does not hold up well to prolonged cooking when used fresh, so add fresh leaves at the end of the cooking process or use dried leaves for sauces or anything that requires lengthy simmering. Dried oregano flower stalks may be used in craft-making

For a plentiful harvest keep terracotta pot watered

Vegetables and herbs need water, but unfortunately nature doesn’t always provide enough on time, so sometimes it’s up to us.

Breaker-Nozzle-Southeast-4

Breaker-Nozzle-Southeast-4

In general, plants need the equivalent of 1 inch of rain each week to moisten the soil to the desired depth, but vegetables in a terracotta pot usually need more because pots dry out more quickly. Vegetables, which are at least 90% water, will not do well if they don’t get watered regularly. Herbs are generally more drought tolerant, but the big leafy ones like basil wilt fast.

The Tools You Need

To conserve water, make use of what would otherwise go down the drain in the kitchen sink or shower by using buckets to collect the water, but avoid soapy water.Some folks like to water their plants every day with a watering can or hose. It is their end-of-day therapy. To hand-water container plants, such as those on your porch or deck, try a watering wand with a breaker nozzle. The wand allows you to reach pots with ease. The breaker nozzle turns a hard stream of water into a gentle cascade. It looks like a showerhead, but to the plant it feels like rain. Avoid wetting leaves because wet leaves, especially on tomatoes, are more likely to get diseases.

The best way to water is to use a drip system with a little emitter for each terracotta pot. Even better, hook it up to a timer to run for several hours and then turn itself off. Just be sure your faucet does not leak and that you have washers on all your hose connections. Otherwise, your water bill will be higher than necessary. A wide selection of timers is available at garden centers. Some are programmable.

Other Aids

  • Mulching the top of the pot prevents evaporation from soil. Use fine bark, or in humid climates, consider white pebbles that dry out quickly.
  • Water drains through quickly, so provide a saucer or other reservoir to catch the extra.
  • Use a potting soil that contains a wetting agent to be sure that the soil stays uniformly moist.
  • Before planting, mix a water-retaining polymer into the soil for vegetables. This will add a reservoir of moisture to the soil.
  • Avoid using clay pots in hot climates, as clay dries out quickly and absorbs heat more readily than many other materials.
