Oregano is a perennial, hardy spice and medicinal herb from the labiates family. It is used fresh or dried for cooking.
You can sow oregano directly or grow it in plant pots. Since oregano is a light germinator, you should only press the seeds lightly and not cover them with soil. For the cultivation, a wind-protected location is recommended. Oregano can also be propagated by cutting or dividing the plant. From June you can harvest leaves and shoots. Older oregano plants should be cut back in spring to encourage the sprouting of young and fresh shoots. Over the winter, it is worth covering the shrub with mulch to prevent cold damage.
