(Origanum syriacum) We offer seeds from Israel for this plant that grows wild in Israel, Jordan and surrounding areas. Doubtless a common herb in Bible times, and still one of the tastiest! It has great flavor that blends hints of Oregano, Thyme and Marjoram. A favorite.

What are the pros? great herb, new flavor to me

What are the cons? can die from watering

Review:

Be careful waterin these seedlings they love dryness and lots of sun. Ours are so extremely hairy and fuzzy compared to oregano but the leaf shape is the same as oregano. Perfect plants used in cooking from 5 seedlings in a med sized container. We made some tasty zaatar salt by drying it in a low oven to infuse the fresh zaatar oregano into some mediterranean sea salt.

What are the pros? Drought and heat tolerant

What are the cons? none

Review:

In the wild it grows in well-drained, sunny slopes that are often quite warm and dry in summer. In AZ, with our extra 15-20 degrees, I try to give it just a bit of shade in mid-summer, but it doesn't seem to mind full blazing sun if given a little more water. Grows a loose, sprawling fuzzy gray-green mat up to 12"-15" high, and I find it self-sows easily, popping up wherever I sprinkled seeds, after just a little cold weather. My daughter, however, can't make it happy in the wet Pacific N'West.

What are the pros? Fragrant

This one is delicate and is slow to germinate. However, once it is up, it is a nice addition to any herb garden.

What are the pros? Survivor

What are the cons? Vines Wad Up, Hard to Handle

Review:

I planted this in my basement in the late fall. Unfortunately that was a few days before the gnats broke out. This plant came up in the worse of times, survived the gnats, survived my attempt to dry everything out, survived the gnats again, and then took off in the spring. I have just started cutting it back to the main starting point and letting it grow out again. The giant wad of oregano is kind of hard to deal with though...

What are the pros? Hardy and flavorful

What are the cons? fragile transplants

Review:

These are actually easier to grow than expected. Growing guides say these need sterile, perfect conditions, but they really just needed patience and loose, well-draining soil (think sandy, vermiculite/perlite, etc.) with good nutrients. Give them lots of time to germinate and expect a high rate of failure when transplanting. But once it is well-established, it vines beautifully and takes over. Very productive, dries and stores well. Aromatic and tasty. I hope they come back in stock soon.
