Growing Instructions

How-to Grow Greek Oregano

Here are easy-to-follow growing instructions for Greek Oregano using natural gardening methods:

  1. Choose a sunny spot: Greek Oregano prefers full sun to light shade, so choose a spot in your garden that gets at least 6 hours of direct sunlight a day.
  2. Prepare the soil: Greek Oregano is hardy and grows well in well-draining soil. You can amend the soil with compost or well-rotted manure to improve fertility and drainage.
  3. Sow the seeds: Sow the Greek Oregano seeds in spring or fall, spacing them about 6 to 8 inches apart. Cover the seeds with a light layer of soil and water well.
  4. Water regularly: Greek Oregano needs regular watering to establish and grow, but be careful not to over water. Once established, it can tolerate drought well.
  5. Mulch: To help conserve moisture and regulate soil temperature, mulch around the plants with a 2-inch layer of organic mulch, such as straw or shredded leaves.
  6. Fertilize: Greek Oregano does not need much fertilizer, but you can give it a boost by adding a light layer of compost or a well-balanced organic fertilizer once a month.
  7. Harvest: Greek Oregano is ready to harvest when the leaves are fully grown and fragrant, usually about 4 to 6 weeks after planting. Snip the leaves as needed, taking care not to remove more than one-third of the plant at a time.

By following these simple steps, you'll be able to grow Greek Oregano in your garden using natural gardening methods. This fragrant and flavorful herb will not only add delicious flavor to your cooking but also provide a host of health benefits!

Seed Saving

Wait for maturity: Wait until the flowers on your Greek Oregano plant have turned brown and started to dry out before harvesting the seeds. This usually occurs in the late summer or early fall.

Cut the stems: Cut the stems of the dried flowers and place them in a paper bag. Gently shake the bag to release the seeds.

Clean the seeds: Spread the seeds out on a sheet of paper and remove any debris, such as stems and leaves.

Store the seeds: Store the cleaned seeds in a cool, dry place, such as a refrigerator or a pantry. Keep them in an airtight container, such as a glass jar or plastic bag, to protect them from moisture and humidity.

By following these simple steps, you'll be able to save the seeds from your Greek Oregano plant and grow this fragrant and flavorful herb again in your garden. Happy gardening!
