Tips from Fran
Origanun Aureum is a prize in the garden. Visually appealing, stunning your senses with its oregano fragrance and a real workhorse in blocking out weeds around your shrubs. We have this as an exception for a woodland area as it will work well IF there is enough light to the area—otherwise it will stretch.
