Some questions about oregano.
planted a greek oregano last year. It didn't grow too well after the toms and cukes started shading it out and eventual crowding it.
After they were done, it was alone in a nice spot and grew a bit. This year - it really took off as I didn't plant anything too nearby.
Harvested some yesterday - but it didn't seem to be too "oregany". We are wanting it for Italian type cuisine, and I thought the greek was the best oregano - am I wrong?
Is there an optimal time to harvest? I'm thinking it isn't like basil where you just take the leaves any old time.
Also - when is the best time to transplant and/or divide?
Thanks for info. Any miscellaneous oregano comments or discussion welcome!
