Oregano is a champion of the cold, one of the first perennial herbs to emerge from winter dormancy. This Greek strain is stronger flavored than others, and it forms a hardy, scrubby, spreading clump over the years. When treated as a perennial, it's best to harvest as much oregano as possible in May or early June, before it begins to flower and develop an overpowering flavor. When grown from seed each year, the leaves remain more delicate and mildly flavored, perfect for fresh eating in salads and quick, fresh sauces. 250 seeds.
With gorgeous original artwork on the outside, this pack opens like a flower into a quatrefoil shape, revealing an evocative backstory about the design and a brief bio of the artist; a photo and description of the variety plus the expiration date, days to maturity, and the number of seeds and organic status; and detailed growing instructions, planting tips and a seedy fact about the variety.
