What are the pros? Surprisingly Vigourous

What are the cons? None really..

Review:

The seeds are smaller than a ball point pin head, but to my surprise, after throwing some on the ground in places that I wanted them and lightly covering them and also spilling them on some wood chip mulched areas they took off after a good rain. You could almost consider them a weed because I haven't even cared for them but they look pretty good. Taste is similar to oregano but not as strong. Neat looking plant.

What are the pros? Good-bug-friendly, pretty

What are the cons? none

Review:

This oregano has been with us for years in our slightly clayey Z4 garden. I think the mature plants overwinter here, but like lemon balm and a few others, it sows itself with such gusto that it's always around even if some plants winterkill. Personally, we think it's a poor culinary herb - true Greek oregano or marjoram are better - but it's fantastic for beneficial insects. It's also pretty and cheerful, and may be a good companion plant for some of the sturdier vegetables. Easy to weed out when it gets overabundant. Pluses far outweigh its deficit in flavor. One year I decided to get rid of it all, then was glad to find that I'd missed some - it's a good little garden buddy.

What are the pros? Low maintainence

What are the cons? none

Review:

I gave this five stars to negate some of the other reviews so people don't get turned off! I put a lot of credence in the reviews myself when ordering. Go ahead and give this one a try! Improper seedling care might be mistaken for poor germination... the seeds are very tiny! I started some inside and they were just ok... they need pretty constant moisture or even better, a dome over the tray to maintain humidity. I threw the rest on the surface of a spot I made for them in the garden and WHOA! off they went! I did not expect them to do so well from direct seeding. I even dug several chunks out and brought them in for winter use. This was excellent in our soups and stews! WAY better than dried from the store. Give this one a try, it's worth it... just KEEP IT MOIST!!!

What are the pros? easy grow

What are the cons? can take over

Review:

I had no problems getting this to germinate. I did direct sow it in my raised garden bed. It can take over a bit so you need to cut it back regularly. My solution to this if I couldn't use it that day was to dry it and/or freeze it in small packets for fresh oregano this winter.

What are the pros? hardy, prolific

What are the cons? teeny tiny seeds

Review:

Some reviewers have had trouble with germination- I did too BUT after figuring it out its not hard. Start in flats and bottom water those teeny tiny seeds or throw on a very fine seed bed and mist. Poor germination can be mistaken due to rough watering/handling. Mine grew away in the garden and I dug out a chunk and stuck it in a pot on the window and its thriving. I snip some off every week or so and throw in winter soups for a rich and earthy flavor. Great plant and seems to be actually doing well under the foot of snow outside!
