OREGANO - 100 Seeds
Oregano, native to the Mediterranean region, is a spreading perennial ground cover with oval dark green leaves; when it comes into flower, oregano can reach a height of 60cm with pink flowers.
It is used fresh or dried in pizza, spaghetti and marinara sauces, plus many other Italian dishes. It also complements beef or lamb stews, gravies, salads, soups, even tomato juice, poultry, cheese and fish.
It combines well with other ingredients such as tomatoes, chilli, onions, garlic, olives, parsley and basil.
Oregano is often used to dry, cut the stems just before they flower for the strongest flavour, then dry in a food dehydrator or an airy, dry spot. Store in an airtight container away from light.
Oregano can be taken for colds, influenza, minor feverish conditions, indigestion, flatulence, stomach upsets and painful menstruation. It can be used externally for arthritis and muscular pain.
Grow next to broccoli and other vegetables from the cabbage family to help repel insects.
Prefers warm, dry climates. Requires full sun with partial shade. Likes well-drained soil. Sow seeds in spring. Keep plants well-watered. Leaves can be harvested 85 – 95 days before flowers appear. Replace plants every couple of years.
Propagation notes will be supplied with a seed packet.
