Greek Oregano (Autumn)


Out of stock

Delicious in smell and taste, a delightful addition to the garden.
With its lovely bright green leaves and aroma, oregano is a very attractive plant for the garden. Planted in autumn, you can expect to be able to use it more or less year round. The flowers are great for bees too.

Number of plants: 3

Variety: Greek (organic)

Can be grown in: Planting in a pot that you can put outside in the summer and inside in the winter works wonders! Find out more in our growing guide below.

In the kitchen: With a warm aroma, oregano goes particularly well with tomatoes, aubergine and lamb and is generally added just at the end of cooking, so that it retains its pungency. It it a popular addition to many Italian and Greek dishes.

Delivery: These plants can be delivered from September until mid/late October, depending on the season. These plants will arrive in 9cm biodegradable pots. For further info, please see FAQs *Transplants suitable for organic growing.

If you cut back oregano at the end of the year, and keep it in a nice sheltered, sunny spot it will do well.


Watering them

Be careful not to over water – oregano is used to dry conditions.



Pinch off flowers

Pick off flower heads as they appear to keep the leaves tasting good (they tend to get a bit more bitter once the plant has flowered)
