TO START INDOORS

In early spring, sow seeds thinly in a container of moistened seed starting mix, but do not cover over; oregano needs light to germinate. Provide a good light source. Keep evenly moist as seedlings slowly emerge over 10 to 21 days.

TO PLANT DIRECTLY IN THE GARDEN

When warm spring weather arrives, sow in full sun in a well-worked, finely textured seedbed with good drainage. Sow thinly, then water very gently for good soil contact, but do not cover seeds. Tend carefully: keep soil evenly moist but not soggy and well weeded.

GROWING NOTES

Mix tiny seeds with dry sand to help space seedlings. Young plants grow slowly at first; a good hot spell encourages strong growth. Pick leaves lightly the first season; wait until the second summer to make bigger harvests, then cut leafy sprays often to enjoy in the kitchen. Given good drainage, this carefree Mediterranean native is hardy and long-lived.
