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.

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.

Great Vendor February 26, 2015
Reviewer: thekarco from Bay Point, CA United States  
I was pleasantly surprised when I received my package ahead of time.  I was quite delighted to notice the excellent packaging that my ordered seeds came in.  I did not expect the metallic envelopes protecting the seeds for the low price I paid for the seeds.
