Oregano, Greek (Origanum vulgare) - 500 Seeds

$1.85 $3.70
There is much confusion concerning the difference between oregano and marjoram. To many, oregano is more of a flavor than any one individual plant. However, if you want to plant “true” oregano, Greek oregano is the one to plant. Oregano is a loose, open plant growing from six inches to two feet tall with gray-green leaves and small purple or white flowers. Common marjoram, often sold as wild oregano, is a hardy rampant growing perennial. It is more of an ornamental herb as it is considered to be inferior for use as a culinary herb.

Growing Instructions:
Transplant (recommended): Sow seeds in flats 8-10 weeks before the last frost. Sprinkle seeds on the top of the growing medium and tamp them into the soil mix. Do not cover seeds, as they require light to germinate. Keep moist until germination. Transplant to individual containers when seedlings have 4 true leaves. When the danger of frost has passed in the spring, transplant outside, spacing plants 12" apart in rows 18" apart. To keep plants healthy, pinch back new growth, remove any old wood at the end of the winter, and replace the plants every 4 years.
