Oregano - True Greek
This is the true Greek oregano used to flavour tomato sauces, with its tongue-biting pungency, so strong that even the seeds have that strong oregano aroma. All culinary herb gardens or containers should include this Greek speciality.
Sow seed on the surface of a free-draining, damp seed compost. Apply a thin layer of compost, 1.5mm deep. Place in a propagator or seal container in a polythene bag at a temperature of 15-18C until after germination which takes 14-21 days. Do not exclude light, as this helps germination. Transplant seedlings, when large enough to handle, into trays. Grow on in cool conditions before planting out after all risk of frost, 30cm apart, or grow on in containers.
