Herb: Italian Oregano Planting Instructions:
Plant seeds in high-quality, well-draining soil after the last frost, in full sun. Seeds should be 1/4 inch deep in rows spaced 8-12" apart. Keep the plant soil cool and damp. After a period of 5-6 weeks, trim the plants back to promote dense growth. For the optimal oregano patch, allow flower seeds to drop on their own. Remove plants that are 3-4 years old.

Herb: Italian Oregano Harvesting Instructions:
Pick your Herb Italian Oregano leaves when they are fresh and mature. To dry, cut flower stems with flower heads not-yet fully bloomed and place on wire racks in a cool, airy space. Once the leaves are dry, pick and store in an air-tight container.
