Cultivation Advice

Oregano is most commonly used as a dried herb, if you prefer to use fresh leaves try pot marjoram as an alternative. The leaves of oregano are best harvested in July, just before the flowers appear. Leaves harvested after the plant has flowered can be bitter, however, by removing the flower buds before the heads open you can keep the leaves tasting fabulous, alnd extend the harvesting period right up to November. 

Oregano is tolerant of most conditions, it requires very little care but grows best in full sun in a well-drained soil of average to low fertility. It is well suited to being grown in pots and containers.

Sow Oregano seeds indoors during February and March, germination normally takes about 14 to 30 days. When the seedlings are large enough to handle prick them out into individual 3 inch pots and grow on again, finally transplanting into a 12 inch or 30cm diameter pot in May.

Outdoor sown Oregano can be planted directly into a well prepared seed bed from April. Sow into 1 inch deep drills spacing 15 cm apart and water well. Thin the seedlings to 30cm when large enough to handle.
