Description
Heirloom Herb. Oregano seeds produce a plant that is a well-known member of the mint family. It is a mainstay in Italian, Spanish and Mexican cuisine. Oregano is also used in herbal tea and of course goes hand-in-hand with most tomato dishes. Greek oregano is also known as winter marjoram or Griechischer oregano.

How to Grow
7000 seed/gram. Sow seed directly outdoors in a sunny site with average soil in mid-to-late May or again in mid-August through to mid-September. In spring, seed can also be started indoors in a soil-less mix 6-8 weeks before last frost date. Keep temperature at 21 C (70 F) for the 7-14 day germination period, then grow on at a slightly cooler temperature before hardening off and transplanting outside after the danger of frost has passed.
