I can relate to that, Sally! I am in zone 4 and they are taking over my little garden patch, beyond where I intended. However, never thought of the possibility of just letting them be and planting in between! Great idea! Thank you.
If it were just an area that could be mowed, oregano takes over as well; it has spilled into our grass and is overcoming it, a nice thick mowable ground cover. The only thing my DH has against it is it makes him hungry for pizza every time he mows there
