Origanum vulgare or Origanum. Origanum is very popular for use in Italian
cooking and a must-have in your Italian herb garden. It gained its popularity due to its typical aroma and pungent flavour, which it gets from a high concentration of phenolic acid. It is used in cooking grilled vegetables, sauces, meat dishes,
bean dishes, and marinades.
Origanum is easy to grow. Use a light, well-drained soil and avoid adding fertilizer to it. Keep the plant in direct sunlight as it intensifies its flavour. Water the plant only when the topsoil goes dry
