Organic Greek-Oregano Herb Seeds

Grown and harvested in Ontario, organic Greek-Oregano Herb seeds take 80 days to reach maturity. It is a perennial plant with a well-loved flavour. The plants produce white flowers. It is also very productive and hardy, winterizing well under the snow in Ontario (Zone 5). Fragrant leaves are dark green and somewhat fuzzy. Harvest leaves and stems throughout the growing season and dry for winter use – the flavour lasts for months. This is the oregano to use on pizza and in tomato sauce.

Planting Instructions

Place in full sun. Start seeds 6 to 10 weeks indoors before last frost for a head start. Plant seeds in well drained soil anytime after last spring frost. For thin plants, plant 8 to 10 inches apart. Allow oregano to grow about 4 inches and then pinch or trim lightly to encourage a denser and bushier plant. Plants will grow 1 to 2 feet tall and spread about 18 inches. Harvest leaves as you as you need them.

About Organic Seeds

What are organic seeds? An organic seed is an unaltered seed that comes from a purely raised plant with no genetic modification and that has not been affected by chemical applications or additives. Because organic growers are not permitted to use synthetic pesticides on their plants, the plants naturally become adapted to withstand pests and other natural enemies such as harsh weather. They have to, in order to defend themselves. When organic seed is used, the plants have that intrinsic strength. In other words, the flavour, colour, nutrition, and natural defenses are bred into the seed.
