Description More Information
 
Vulgare Oregano is a very popular “pizza herb” widely used in Italian, Greek and Mexican cooking. Leaves can be used fresh or dried and add warm spicy flavor to your favorite recipes! Bright blue-green plants grow 6" tall and up to 24" in diameter.

Leaves can be harvested in 85 to 95 days (before flowers appear). Drought tolerant.

Detailed Planting Instructions:

Plant in full sun and well-drained soil after danger of frost has passed, spacing plants or thinning seedlings to stand 8 to 10 inches apart. Trim plants back before flowering (approximately 5 to 6 weeks after planting) to stimulate a dense growth habit. If you allow some of the flowers to produce and drop their seed, you can keep your oregano patch fresh and vigorous. Remove 3- to 4-year-old plants to keep the bed quality high

HARVESTING

Pick fresh leaves as needed; for drying, just before full flowering, cut stems with flower heads attached and dry on wire racks in a cool, airy place, then pick off leaves and store in an airtight jar

SAVING SEEDS

As all the seeds do not ripen at the same time, keep a close watch when the flowers start drying. At this point cut off the seed heads, place in a paper bag and hang in the shade. Later on the flowers can be stripped and sieved and carefully blown or winnowed.

Seed storage:

The seeds will last five years. They are oval and red-tinged. There are 12,000 seeds to the gram.

The best seeds we've ever planted April 13, 2016
Reviewer: Beth from Warner, NH United States  
Our family began using My Patriot Supply seeds last year and were very impressed with the quality and crop we received. These are high quality seeds that I can feel good about knowing they are GMO free. This spring I planted early and a friend came to help. She brought some organic seeds from a different company to plant as well and within 24 hours the MPS seeds were already sprouting while hers took more than a week to begin popping up. I highly recommend MPS to anyone who is looking to plant a garden!

Oregano can take over your beds.  We have a section of lawn that smells terrific when we mow!

Germinated in five days! April 15, 2015
Reviewer: KB from Wyoming  
(Ditto my Basil review) These are the first Oregano  seeds that have actually "broken" through the dirt!  I have bought from numerous companies and ended up going to a local green house to get potted plants because the seeds never germinated. Looks like this year will be different.
