This Kent Beauty
Oregano was planted from one of our three inch pots
and potted into a gallon size container in August. By the following June, it
was over flowing. Kent Beauty is a very nice hanging basket plant, or a
top-of-the-wall plant, but because the blooms hang the effect is somewhat
lost when planted at ground level. When it is finished blooming. it will need to be cut almost
to the ground and repotted in a larger container or planted into the garden.
It does not take foot traffic well, so plant where it is protected.
The bracts can be cut and
dried for crafts. Cut the stems before any browning occurs on the bracts.
Hang upside down to dry. Or use them fresh and add them to other herbs to
make a fresh herbal wreath.
