A true Greek oregano loved by all Italian and Greek chefs. Strong oregano aroma and flavor. Characteristic dark green leaves with white flowers. Provides pollen and nectar for beneficial insects such as bees, hoverflies, lacewing larva, parasitic wasps, and tachinid flies. The flowers have an oregano flavor and can be used in the same manner as the herb. They are especially good in pasta salads, green salads, and as a fresh pizza topping. 125mg ~ 500 seeds.

Start seed indoors 6-8 weeks before transplanting into the garden. Cover soil very lightly as seeds require light to germinate. Optimum soil temperature for seed germination is 65-75 degrees. Transplant to the garden 1-2 weeks after your average last frost date. Prefers well-drained soil. Established plants can be cut back several times throughout the growing season. Pruning encourages new growth on the plant. Great for container and in-ground gardening.
