Oregano (Origanum vulgare). 90 days. Widely used in Italian dishes, tomato sauce, pizza, fish and salad dressing. Use fresh or dried in sauces and soups. Perennial in Zones 5-10. Hardy 2 ½ inch plant with pungent, oval leaves and purplish pink flowers.



Oregano is a perennial with rose-purple or white flowers and a taste reminiscent of thyme. Its taste is zesty and strong and is commonly used in Italian dishes. Oregano is a hardy plant and makes a good ground cover.


Oregano loves the sun; ensure your placement has full, strong sun for strong flavor; some folks plant later in the season for assured warm weather.

However, for a head start, plant the seeds/cuttings 6 to 10 weeks before the last spring frost.

Oregano can easily be started from seeds, though you can also use cuttings from an established plant.

Plant the seeds/cuttings in well-drained soil anytime after the last spring frost. The soil should be around 70ºF.

For thin plants, plant 8 to 10 inches apart. The plants will grow 1 to 2 feet tall and spread about 18 inches.

Oregano makes a good companion for any vegetable in the garden.


Allow oregano to grow to about 4 inches and then pinch or trim lightly to encourage a denser and bushier plant.

Regular trimming will not only cause the plant to branch again, but also avoid legginess.

Oregano doesn’t need quite as much water as most herbs. As the amount of watering depends on many variables, just water when the soil feels dry to the touch. Remember that it’s better to water thoroughly and less often.

If you have a container, water until the water comes out of the drainage holes in the bottom of the container.

To ensure the best-quality plants, thin out plants that are 3 or 4 years old in the early spring. Oregano is self-seeding, so the plants will easily grow back.

You can divide the plants in late spring if you want to put one indoors.

All multiple orders of the same seed are put in the same bag. For example if you order 500 beefsteak tomato seeds x 3 then 1500 seeds will be put in the same bag. We do not send out 3 individual bags with 500 in each. This goes for all seeds unless they are listings of different seeds.


If you can’t find germinating and instructions online you can find them on the item page. Our goal is to save money everywhere we can so we can pass those savings on to you.
