Rosemary and Oregano Combo

Not only do rosemary and oregano taste good together, they look great together, too! Pamela Crawford designed this low, wide container with the two flavorful herbs, paired with big-leafed coleus and spiky celosia.

Plant the celosia in the middle of the pot, along the back, with the rosemary in front of it. Tuck in the coleus and oregano along the front and side edge.

Plant in full sun or light shade in good quality potting mix. Water thoroughly if the planting shows any side of wilt—generally, every day in summer and every other day in cooler weather. Fertilize when planting with Bonnie Herb & Vegetable Plant Food.

Trim plants as needed to keep the arrangement looking tight. This combo works well from spring through fall in warm areas.
