Oregano - Array - Origanum vulgare
Tender Perennial This is a culinary, large-leaved variety with white flowers. Use oregano leaves dried or fresh in chili, tomato sauce, meats, and pizza.
Soil & Water: Oregano prefers light, well-drained, moderately fertile soil with a neutral pH. Water regularly, but moderately.
Planting & Growing: Start seeds indoors 6-8 weeks before frost or sow seed directly after last frost, when soils have reached at least 60F. Pinch during early growth to establish a bushier habit. Typical germination rate for oregano seed is 50%.
Harvesting & Storage: Harvest leaves as desired. Leaves retain flavor well when dried; dry away from sun to preserve color and flavor. Store in an airtight container.
