OREGANO GREEK - organic seeds
Origanum vulgare var hirtumPerenmnial plant. Fiery aroma, white flowered. 40-60cm. Greek oregano pairs brilliantly with meats, eggs, and roasted vegetables like zucchini and eggplant
Light requirements: Full sun to part shade. Plants benefit from afternoon shade in warmest zones.
Planting: Space 12 to 36 inches apart. (Read the stick tag that comes with the plant for specific spacing recommendations.) Moist, but well drained, pH 6.5 to 7. Do not cover soil.
Soil requirements: Plants grow best in well-drained soil, but can also adapt to other soil types.
Water requirements: Keep soil moist after planting until plants are well-rooted. Once established, plants in beds can survive on rainfall. In containers, irrigate whenever soil is dry.
Frost-fighting plan: Oregano is perennial in zones 5 to 10. Established plants can survive a few hard frosts (under 28º F). Use a frost blanket to protect newly planted seedlings from late spring frosts or prolong the growing season.
