Oregano has a wonder aroma and adds delicious flavor on pizza, in egg dishes, and in tomato sauces.

 

Native to the Mediterranean region, this plant prefers climates with lower humidity, so keep the foliage and roots away from too much moisture. Give it good air circulation. For that reason, it is perfectly suited for a container.

In the ground it makes a ground-cover-like mat.

 

Harvest anytime, but especially as the stems begin to get tall and are getting ready to flower that is when the leaves are the most flavorful. Cut it back several times during the growing season to harvest the leaves from the stems.

 

Oregano is perennial, thriving in full sun and soil that's on the dry side. Once established in your garden, this plant will want to dry out a bit between waterings. When you do water it, do so thoroughly, letting the water really penetrate deeply into the soil. This will encourage roots to grow down and find their own water sources, meaning even less maintenance for you.

 

Germination tip: Sow seed as thinly as possible, but do not cover as seeds need light to germinate.
