Site Selection

Oregano is a hardy perennial (Zone 5-9) that prefers full sun-partial shade and well-drained soil high in organic matter.


For best germination, expose seeds to cool, moist conditions (stratification) for 2 weeks before sowing indoors. The refrigerator works well for stratification. Optimal soil temperature for germination is 65-80°F. Sow seeds 1/8” deep and 2-4” apart. Seeds will germinate in 7-14 days. Transplant outdoors once the danger of frost has passed. Thin so that mature plants are 18-24" apart.


Harvest the aerial parts anytime during the growing season. Oregano can be used fresh or dried in many dishes and medicinally in tinctures, ointments, etc.
