    Description: Low-growing perennial to Zone 4 with pungent green leaves and small flowers. Related to mint and native to the Mediterranean, oregano has been used as a culinary and medicinal herb for thousands of years. Can be grown as a ground cover by keeping it groomed low so it spreads out.

    Planting Instructions: Oregano seeds require sunlight to germinate. Scatter seeds on top of well-prepared soil when temps are above 70F. Plant in a location that receives direct sunlight. alternately, start plants indoors and transplant when outdoor temps rise to above 50F. Plants will spread out to about 18" and send out runners. Leaves are best before the plant flowers. Cutting stems back to the ground encourages growth and a fuller plant. Pinch flowers to to keep from bolting.
