Thanks for joining us for a week, Crystal. I am a container gardener ready to map out a master plan for my front yard and say good bye to grass. I'm in southern California (11A) and would appreciate some resources you suggest on how to get started on conditioning soil (need everything but drainage is strong).
Dream is to build something permanent, educational, healing, and peaceful. Thanks for being with us.
Next time, you can give cuttings. With a little root propagator (or willow sap I've heard), you can make some plantlings to share. I got a rosemary cutting from a neighbor, and it's doing great with just spring water and sun. Most herbs can be propagated from cuttings especially the ones that spread (rhizome monsters).
Oregano is pretty invasive so the trim back was probably a good idea. Too bad it had to happen in a tougher season.
