Growing & Harvesting Information

Perennial in USDA Zones 6a-10b, Hot & Spicy Oregano is an easy-to-grow perennial that tolerates a variety of soils, as long as those soils are well drained. Like most Mediterranean-type herbs, they need only moderate water and grow best in a gravelly loam with as much sun as you can give them.

You can begin harvesting oregano for fresh or dried use when the plant is about 8 inches high.  Harvest leaves frequently. The flavor is most intense just before the plant blooms. Frequent harvests will produce a bushier plant and keeps foliage succulent. In fact, it's a good idea to cut plants back to about 6 inches at least twice during the growing season, leaving ample growth in fall to sustain the plant through winter.
