Botanical Interests Common Oregano Seeds
Perennial. Hardy to USDA zone 5.
This mild-flavored oregano can be used in pizza sauce, pastas, and pesto. Its dainty pink blooms add to its beauty as a ground cover, attract honeybees and beneficial insects, and can be used as cut or dried flowers. There is a lot of misinformation about oregano varieties on the Internet and in the seed trade. Common Oregano is often confused with the more pungent white-flowered True Greek variety. Common Oregano has a milder flavor somewhat between the slight spiciness of Marjoram and Thyme. Having a gentle flavor for cooking, it is also the traditional variety for medicinal use. Leaves can be used as a fresh or dried herb. The pretty pink to lavender flowers appear from mid-summer to fall. Also called Wild Oregano, Pot Marjoram, or Wild Marjoram. When to plant outside: Spring, 2-4 weeks after average last spring frost. Plant as late as 2 months before first fall frost. When to start inside: RECOMMENDED. 6-8 weeks before average last frost.

About Botanical Interests
Curtis and Judy met while waiting to interview for the same horticultural job and soon found they shared a boundless enthusiasm for gardening. Botanical Interests began out of their mutual passion and personal desire for better quality seed and more informational tools to help and inpire gardeners.
"We wanted a level of purity and quality that wasn't easy to find," recalls Curtis. So they searched out the highest quality seed available and began their business in 1997, in the spare bedroom of their Colorado home. The business objectives they established then still hold strong for them now: to inspire and educate gardeners; to provide high quality seed to their customers; and to create an enjoyable work place for employees.
Over the years, Judy and Curtis' family has grown along with their line of seeds which now attracts and pleases customers nationwide.
