Hi..I have come across a great recipe Jamie Olivers Spicy Lamb Shanks...Absolutely Yum if a meat eater....He suggests Oregano OR Marjoram. I I have used Oregano....I want to grow at my home....wondering why he chose between the 2 herbs....I googled and seems to have an Italian taste.....

Tracey, my husband makes this yummy dish often and always uses Oregano - better flavour, more versatile and can be used in several other recipes we make, like bolognaise sause, with oven baked Mullet, chicken bone broth. We have grown oregano both in the ground and pot, morning sun and not too wet or it will die! I recently bought some in a pot and repotted it to a larger pot within 3-4 weeks... grows very quickly! We've had a very mild winter (warm days) but very cold nights.
