Planting Advice

Sow seeds directly into finely prepared soil. When they emerge and have reached a good size, thin seedlings to final spacing. Oregano thrives in a warm, sunny position in a well-drained soil. Harvest in spring and summer before flowers form.

Remove flowers to prolong picking period. Sow 0.25in (0.5cm) deep in pots or trays of seed compost. Keep moist and thin as necessary. Harden off before planting out, 8 in (20cm) apart. Sow all year round in pots on the windowsill.

Watering needs

Keep soil moist.

Pruning Advice

Remove dead flower heads to prolong flowering.
