Common Oregano (Origanum vulgare) is an aromatic herb that is widely used in Mediterranean and Mexican cuisine. Its strong, pungent flavor adds depth and complexity to a variety of dishes, including sauces, soups, and stews. Oregano is a hardy and easy-to-grow herb that will thrive in well-drained soil and full sun.
When growing oregano from seed, sow the seeds directly in the ground in the spring or start them indoors a few weeks before the last expected frost. Oregano seeds are slow to germinate, so be patient and keep the soil moist until the plants are established. Once the plants have grown to a few inches tall, they can be thinned to 6-12 inches apart.
In the garden, oregano will form a bushy, upright plant that can reach a height of up to 2 feet. As it grows, it will produce small, white or pink flowers that are attractive to pollinators.
Whether grown for culinary purposes or ornamental use, oregano is a versatile and hardy herb that is sure to add a touch of Mediterranean charm to your garden.
