This is why I love having oregano in the garden, I interplant oregano in a lot of my beds, Bees everywhere, I literally walk through the oregano brushing up against the bees and they could care less.

I have a great deal of thyme and oregano in my flower beds.  Yes, they certainly attract pollinators, but I worry that they may crowd out my perennials and other plants.  Thoughts?

Stay on top of them, I thin them out of my beds each fall.

I did pull quite a few clumps this summer.  I suppose I need to get out there and finish off the job.

What different types or varieties do you grow successfully? Are there certain locations in your SFG beds that you put the Oregano?

I had oregano in my old houes’s garden.  It is pretty, and the bees love it, but as a member of the mint family has invasive potential in the right spot.  I love it though!  If you have the right location, it is great!

Yes we encourage everyone to plant more herbs and flowers that attract our much needed pollinators like bees. How good would it be if you could find the honeycomb of the bees that are pollinating your SFG beds and be able to harvest that honey. The potency of pure gold would be tremendous and swwweeeeeetttt.

Just oregano I bought years ago, not sure of a specific name.


I intense plant not technically SFG. I put it in a lot of places, I just yank up a hunk and shove it in the soil.
As it grows I'll train it to hang out of the beds, trim some as a chop and drop and leave the rest for the pollinators.

  • As it grows I'll hack it back and drop in the trimmings in place, to keep it in check I'll also tear up clumps of it, chop up the roots and drop on top of the mulch. You can see it peeking out under the eggplant.

  • Here's a clump of oregano left after 2017 cleanup.

  • This is another bed, the oregano will be chopped down close to the soil and dropped around the eggplant.

Thanks for the pictures. I have been growing it in my herb bed but now will expand it to the other beds. I love Cuban Oregon.

We have a large bed of Italian Oregano, which gets a little bigger every year, but is freely used by many neighbors that get cuttings to dry for their cooking herbs, along with Parsley, Sage, and Savory.  All of them are not only great herbs, but are very attractive for pollinators.  As a former commercial beekeeper, that is always of interest to me.

As I remember from Greek Mythology class, Aphrodite, the goddess of beauty, created oregano as a symbol of happiness.
