Origanum vulgare

Oregano is an easy to grow perennial herb with culinary and medicinal uses. Though a perennial, it should be replanted every 3-4 years.

Seed Starting

Start seeds indoors, 8-10 weeks before last frost. For the eastern shore in 2024, that is between January 29th and February 12th. Fill flats with potting or seed starting mix and add seeds.  Press into soil, do not cover, and mist gently. Keep under grow lights or on a sunny windowsill. Seedlings should emerge after 10-21 days. 


Harden off

Once 4 true leaves appear, tranplant to larger cells or individual pots
