Oregano

(Origanum vulgare) Oregano is native to the hot, arid regions of eastern Eurasia and the Mediterranean, and it it is hardy down to USDA zone 5. The name oregano is derived from Greek words meaning "brightness of the mountain," and we couldn't agree more! The flavors of this aromatic herb range from spicy and astringent to more complicated and sweet. Oregano is easy to grow from seeds and can later be propagated by cuttings. The plants require very little maintenance and flourish in dry conditions and average soils. Oregano also does well in containers and can be brought indoors and placed in a south-facing window to enjoy during winter months. Start indoors 4-6 weeks before last frost and transplant out after last frost. Surface sow seeds as light aids germination. Ideal germination temperature is 60F. Seeds germinate in 7-14 days. Provide full sun and well-drained soil. Space plants 12 inches apart.
