Oregano, a plant from the mint family, is widely used across cuisines worldwide. Not only are they tasty, they're versatile and easy to grow. They can be planted next to almost anything, and are often used in gardens regardless of culinary use.
Direct sunlight 6-8 hours/day (indoor) or full sun (outdoor).
Let soil dry out between waterings.
Safe for pets. Go ahead and add some flavor to their meals too.
Should be harvested right before or just as they flower.
Great with grilled veggies, on pizza, and in pesto alongside basil.
Pro-tip: An easy way to separate leaves after harvest is to pinch the stem near its tip, then run your fingers down the length of the stem, from top to bottom.
