Resembles oregano but with larger leaves. Is very useful in the kitchen: sprinkle on meat or vegetable dishes, use in salad dressings, etc. Also used as an insect repellent. Superior yield in humid, fertile soil in a very sunny area.
Sow indoors in February or March. Seeds are slow to germinate. For continuous harvests make 2 or 3 sowings every 2 weeks. Use fresh or dried. For drying, pick the leaves just before the flowers appear, the taste will be more intense.
