Oregano, or majoram, does do well in pots, but as I mentioned before, it does self seed everywhere. We have several different types doing so, which I find Ok, but maybe in a smaller space might become overpowering. It is amazing how big plants can make enough roots in what appears to be the tiniest of cracks and spaces - particularly foxgloves and verbascum. Another vigourous self sower is columbine, unless you have the sterile new hybrids, they appear in the most amazingy tiny areas, as do the tiny daisies whose name I can't reacall just now - I had them in a pot from whence they seeded to the front steps - where they grow happily, though the potfull went years ago. White tall campanula self seeds enthusiastically as well, again into the most incredible of places, as does blue lobelia from the hanging baskets. I love all this self seeding, even if they are not specifically 'wild' plants, they are acting that way.
