Growing Oregano: Care & Tips

E-mail Print PDF

Oregano is easy and fast to grow in sunny, warm climates. Plant oregano near other herbs and vegetables in well-draining soil in a sunny location. Plant oregano seed 6 to 10 weeks before the last spring frost, spacing them 8 to 10 inches apart. Cover them slightly with soil and water; no fertilization is needed. Cut back oregano plants to encourage bushier and taller growth. Keep them slightly watered to prevent rot, and check frequently for signs of pest infestation. Harvest oregano by cutting the stems above a set of leaves. Dry and store leaves in a dry, dark location.

Oregano grows best in plenty of sunlight in mild climates. In sunnier, warmer locations, it will need a little bit of shade through the day for less intense sunlight. Its soil should be well-draining, with a pH between 6.5 and 7.0. You can use an appropriate compost to make it more alkaline or acidic, if needed.

Oregano grows well near most other herbs. It can also help brighten up your garden aesthetically by tying it in with your landscaping. Plant it along walkways or strategically within your garden to provide height and greenery.
