Oregano is native to temperate Western and Southwestern Eurasia and the Mediterranean region. Oregano is a perennial herb, growing from 20–80 cm tall, with opposite leaves 1–4 cm long. The flowers are purple, 3–4 mm long, produced in erect spikes. Oregano is a must-have in a culinary garden. Its pungent, spicy, slightly bitter flavor pairs well with almost any vegetable preparation. And just as easy to grow as chives, oregano is another go-to for a first-time gardener

Scientific name: Origanum vulgare Higher classification: Oreganos Botanical. Wild marjoram belongs to the mint family (Lamiaceae). It is a fragrant perennial plant with woody rhizome. The opposite leaves are 3-5 cm long, oval, tipped at one side. The umbrelliferous flowers compose a fake umbrella on the top of the stem. It blooms from June to September.

History and Uses: It is known since antiquity. Dioscorides used wild marjoram in order to enhance appetite. In the Middle Ages it was used for pursuing witches and devils. Saint Hildegard suggested oregano against leprosy. In China it is used for ages against fever, puke, diarrhea, jaundice and itchy skin diseases.

Planting Condition: Where to Plant: Oregano is one of those plants that looks beautiful planted in the landscaping or along a path. It is a "garden anchor" that comes back every spring, providing height and dimension within the garden. Oregano also grows well in containers, so if you live in a high-rise apartment or have a limited growing space, it is a great option. Oregano also performs well indoors, when given enough light and warmth.

You can grow oregano by planting from seed, by dividing, or from a cutting taken from a healthy, established plant. When planting from seed, plant seeds outdoors about six weeks before the last frost. If you are planting a cutting or transplanting a seedling or small plant, make sure the ground temperature is at least 70°F.

How to Cultivate Oregano

Soil: Plant oregano in light fast-draining soil. Oregano actually grows better in the moderately fertile soil, so no fertilization or addition of compost is necessary. I let my oregano do what it does on its own. My only complaint might be that I can't keep up with the harvest!

Sun: Oregano performs well in part to full sun, but the flavors intensify when it receives a full day of sunshine. Oregano will grow well indoors, but it is important that the plant receives adequate heat and sunshine in order to grow.

Water: Don't over water oregano. Water thoroughly, only when the soil is dry to the touch. Spacing: Plant oregano eight to 10 inches apart in your garden. Oregano grows up to two feet tall and spans about 18 inches across. If you are planting oregano in a container, be sure the pot is about 12 inches in diameter; oregano is a prolific grower.

Companion planting: Oregano is a great companion plant to almost anything, so don't worry about planting it next to something it won't get along with. I plant oregano alongside my tomatoes and peppers. Oregano keeps away a tomato's archenemy, aphids, by means of predation. Aphids actually love oregano, but oregano also attracts syrphidae (flower flies), which then dine upon the small bugs.

Start seeds indoors 6-8 weeks before last frost, then plant outdoors after soil and air temps have warmed Grows in almost any type of soil with minimal watering Start harvesting 5-6 weeks after transplanting Prevent attacks from aphids, spider mites and mildew by providing good air circulation

Germination: Will germinate in about 14-21 days

Temperature: Ideal temperature is 16-21 C (61-70 F)

Sunlight: Full sun to partial shade

Maturity: 70-90 days from seed

Height: 12 to 24 inches

Spacing: 8 to 12 inches apart

Sow seed 1.5cm (¾”) deep in pots or trays on the surface of moist seed compost and cover with a sprinkling of finely sieved compost. Place the seed tray in a propagator at a temperature of 16-21C (61-70F) or seal inside a clear polythene bag until germination which takes 14 - 21 days. When seedlings are large enough to handle, transplant into 7.5cm (3") pots and grow on in cooler conditions. When all risk of frost has passed, gradually acclimatise oregano plants to outdoor conditions over 7 - 10 days before planting outdoors. Plant oregano at a distance of 30cm (12”) apart on any well drained or chalky
