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.

Best Place to Buy August 26, 2014
Reviewer: Brie from Jacksonville, FL United States  
I have bought many things from My Patriot Supply and EVERY time they have my order out within 24 hours. I always get my package quickly and never have problems. The package arrives in great condition as well as the seeds I've ordered. I have grown many of them (turned out awesome!) and will continue to buy from this company. I haven't come across a quicker, more efficient, and higher quality place to buy from!

Oregano March 12, 2014
Reviewer: Cynthia Phillips from Medina, TN United States  
I received it very quickly, so I was pleased with that.  And planted them 11 days ago and already have some lovely little sprouts.  I'm very happy with my purchase.
