In ancient Greece, oregano was translated directly as “the joy of the mountain” or “the radiance of the mountain”, depending on who you ask. It is located in the very center of the city. And if you ask a gardener today what herbs he grows, most likely he grows oregano among them.

Oregano is a perennial plant belonging to the mint family. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Nevertheless, it is widely used, in particular, in Mediterranean, Latin or Argentine cuisines.

The staff was very friendly and helpful. It was probably this light company with other flavors that brought this Mediterranean herb to the heights it enjoys today!

Growing oregano gives you more than an unlimited supply of this pantry staple. It is also a beautiful deciduous plant, sometimes used as a groundcover under other plants. This herb is ideal even for a novice gardener.

All About Oregano

Speaking of oregano, Origanum vulgare is its botanical name. This is a great place to stay for a few days. Marjoram, also called oregano marjoram, is sometimes called “sweet marjoram”. But our favorite oregano, oreganum vulgare, is sometimes called “wild marjoram” as a result.

Growing to a maximum height of 1 to 2 feet, oregano grows to about 18 inches in diameter. Its leaves are small, lobe-shaped, dark green in color. When it blooms, its tiny delicate flowers are pink, purple or white. And even better is that these little flowers are also delicious!

The Greeks believed that the herb was created by Aphrodite, the goddess of love, and that cows that ate oregano had the most delicious meat. This tradition continued in the kitchen. Greek oregano is a popular ingredient in many meat dishes, especially those of Persian origin.

Oregano essential oil is extracted from oregano leaves and is commonly used as a folk remedy. The staff was very friendly and helpful.

Some types of oregano have a slightly different taste or color than the main plant itself. For example, golden oregano, Oreganum vulgare “golden”, has a paler yellow-green color of the leaves. “Cleopatra” has a fluffier leaf surface and a milder taste with almost a hint of mint, and “Hot & Spicy” adds a touch of strong oregano flavor to sauces or stews. Greek oregano is one of the most famous main plants of oregano, second only to Italian oregano in leaf size.

Like many Mediterranean herbs, growing oregano, you will quickly discover that it is prolific. It spreads easily, although it rarely reaches more than 18″ -24″ in diameter per plant, and constantly produces new leaves.

Planting oregano

In fact, cooking oregano is very simple. Let’s discuss planting oregano to get the best chance of success in the garden.

If you are in an area where temperatures remain above freezing, you can grow oregano all year round. However, you’ll still want to plant it in the spring whenever possible, as it has a better chance of settling in before the summer heat sets in.

Sow the seeds indoors 6-10 weeks before the last date of spring frosts. Use a seed starter tray and lightly cover the seeds with a fine seed starter mixture. Keep the soil moist and at 70 degrees Fahrenheit. You should have seedlings in 10-21 days.

As soon as the seeds germinate, provide enough light. You can put the tray in a sunny window or put it under a growing lamp at a height of at least 3-4 inches above the plants. No more than 16 hours a day. When the seedlings have 3 pairs of leaves and their height is several inches, transfer them to a 3-4-inch pot.

When the last frosts have passed, temper the oregano outdoors, and then plant it in the garden at the same depth at which they were planted in pots. You can also plant oregano in growing bags or other containers, rather than directly into the soil or on an elevated bed. Make sure that your growing bags or pots have a diameter of at least 10-12 inches and a depth of 8-10 inches, as this provides enough space.

Those who live in the hot south of the United States, especially in California or Florida, can also plant oregano during this break between summer and fall. The location was perfect, the staff was very friendly and helpful. Oregano grows best in zones 5-10 of the USDA.

When transplanting an oregano plant, make sure that it is not tied to the roots. Loosen the soil around the roots so that the roots do not spiral. Try to distribute the roots by placing them in a container or a bed, as this will help the young plant to stretch out and find sources of moisture.

As long as the growing conditions are good, oregano plants can grow well both indoors and outdoors. Keep in mind that oregano craves light and sunlight, so choose a place where there will be full sun, or provide lighting for growing. In fact, it is an excellent candidate as an indoor herb garden plant.

Care

Although we talked about planting, we didn’t explain how to grow oregano. Let’s look at the right methods of caring for these delicious herbs.

Watering and humidity

Like most Mediterranean plants, oregano grows in an area sufficient for drought. These are fairly drought-tolerant plants, but they will grow quickly if they have a little extra water.

As a rule, the best approach is to water oregano deeply and thoroughly, rather than having many short watering sessions. It was a very pleasant place to stay. Using a garden hose to provide slow, oozing watering at the base of the plant, as this allows the soil to absorb water more easily and reduces the risk of excessive watering.

Solution

For oregano, a light loamy soil is best suited, although a slightly sandy soil is also suitable. It should be well drained to reduce the risk of various regurgitations from the roots or stems. Adding a small amount of additional organic matter, such as rich compost, should satisfy most of the plant’s nutrient needs.

The pH level of the soil is not really a problem; your oregano will work in the range from slightly acidic to slightly alkaline. A good neutral range is about 6-7 pH, and everything should be fine. The pH detection kit can help you get a good idea of the pH of your soil.

Fertilizer

If you are working with compost during planting, your oregano may not need much fertilizer. But, like most plants, it does not hurt to feed it from time to time. There is a lot of room for improvement.

A balanced granular fertilizer applied once or twice a year should be enough to feed your plants. The staff was very friendly and helpful. You don’t need to fertilize the oregano garden in autumn or winter.
