Growing Oregano

Growing oregano is super easy. It’s a good choice for a beginner gardener as it is easy to grow.
You can grow oregano from seeds and from cuttings. To grow oregano from seeds, divide the seed in two and sow the seeds outdoors about six weeks from the last frost. To grow the plant from cuttings, take a cutting from a healthy and established plant and plant in a container or ground.

Oregano Care


Oregano grows well in partial to full sun. When provided full the flavour of the leaves intensifies. You can easily grow the plant indoors but make sure it receives a good amount of sunlight.


Oregano does well in lighter, well-drained soil. It does not need organic manure and fertilizers.


Do not overwater oregano. Water only when the soil has dried out fully.


When your oregano plant grows 4 inches tall, pinch off the growing tips. Pruning your plant helps promote new branches and makes the plant bushier.


The most aromatic and flavourful leaves are found immediately before the plant flowers. You can begin harvesting when it grows around eight inches tall. Cut the stem up to 2/3rd of its length. You can use the fresh leaves for cooking. If you want to dry your oregano, cut long sprigs and group them into bundles. Hang the bunch to a nail or drying rack. Simply, strip the leaves when dry and crush them until they are even in size. Store it in a clean and dry container.
