How to Grow Organic Italian Oregano Culinary Herb from Seed

Oregano seeds are a full sun herb best started indoors in early spring. For earliest starts, begin indoors 8-10 weeks prior to your final regional frost. Loosely plant 5-6 oregano seeds per cell or per square inch and mist heavily before placing in full sun. Oregano seeds are best sown with a thin layer of soil no more than ¼" deep, ideally less, and kept warm under a humidity tray.

Unlike other perennial herbs, Organic oregano seeds germinate in just 7-14 days with full sunlight. Thin out and transplant your best starts once oregano seedlings have reached about 6" tall, transplanting one start per pot or 12-18" in the garden in full sun.

Oregano thrives both indoors and out with full sun and, once established, can be easily propagated by cuttings for clones. Regardless of type and cultivar, oregano is tolerant to drought, erosion, and poor rocky soils.

Organic Oregano Culinary Seeds in the Herb Garden

Low-maintenance herbs such as oregano are a staple for xeriscaped gardens, container gardening, and grow spaces where other ornamentals traditionally do not perform. Oregano is a choice crop for pots, planters, and containers because they provide plants reliable and through drainage, keep roots free from needless saturation. Regardless of cultivar, all 50+ varieties of genus Origanum are susceptible to root rot and mold in poorly drained and poorly ventilated grow soils.

Harvesting Organic Oregano Culinary Herb

Individual stems and sprigs may still be harvested as long as those particular stems are without any flowering. Oregano can be harvested as early as 50-60 days from transplanting, guaranteeing the youngest, most flavorful, and tender leaves possible. Harvesting from established oregano plants will require a more scrupulous eye to differentiate the woodier, more mature sprigs from the new and aromatic growth preferred for culinary use.
