This herb is essential to Mediterranean & Mexican cuisine. Strongly aromatic leaves are used in sauces and to flavour meat. Oregano goes hand in hand with most tomato dishes. Grows to 2' high. Oregano is a perennial hardy to Zone 5 with winter protection.

How to Grow

Sow seed outdoors in mid to late May, then every two weeks through June, or start them inside and transplant after the danger of frost has passed. Oregano can be grown indoors on a sunny window or under lights during the winter. Indoor oregano plants are not long lived nor do they produce significantly, but they will add a bit of summer to dull winter days. Outdoors, oregano is a low maintenance and prolific plant. All you really need to do is provide water when necessary. Thrives in bright, hot sunny gardens. Lightly feed with a general purpose fertilizer as too much can adversely affect the production of the essential oils responsible for flavour and aroma. Oregano is grown for leaves and flower clusters.
