The real Dost (Origanum vulgare) belongs to the family of Labiatae ( Lamiaceae ) and is also called wild marjoram because the two herbaceous plants belong to the same genus. Oregano comes from the Mediterranean region, but the perennial herb can be grown in almost all of Europe . From mid-February, oregano can be grown on the windowsill and then still needs a lot of water, but once the plant has established itself, it is quite resistant to drought. A warm and sunny spot with calcareous soil is ideal. Oregano blooms between July and September , the flowers are white to purple and edible . It is important to cut the shoots in spring, otherwise they will become woody.
