Greek Oregano is True oregano and savored for its strong aroma and spicy intense flavor. With its stronger, more aromatic flavor and scent it is one of the most important herbs of Italian, Greek and Mexican cooking. The flavor stands up to bold flavors like tomatoes, onion, garlic and beef.

Greek oregano is a bushy perennial with bright deep purple-brown stems and 1½-inch broadly ovate leaves that often have a red flush. Branched clusters of purple-pink flowers appear all summer. At maturity, this perennial reaches 18 inches tall and wide.

Hardy plants are 24" tall and heat and drought tolerant.

Seeds can be started indoors.

Sow seeds after the last frost date.

Plant seeds 1/4" deep and then thin them to 6" apart. Water and trim often to delay blooming.  Seeds should come up in 7-14 days.  

Plant in a sunny location with well-draining soil. Water seeds frequently and keep moist until they germinate. As the plants become established they do well in slightly drier conditions.

Each packet contains 300 Greek Oregano seeds. Origanum vulgar. Perennial. Open-pollinated, heirloom, non-GMO. Harvest in 60 days. $3.00

This packet plants a 100' row.
