How to grow oregano in pots or window boxes

oregano in a pot

Oregano (Origanum Vulgare) is a perennial, herbaceous, bushy herb.

The pot or window box  with Oregano should be placed in a sunny location.

You can sow Oregano seeds in early spring. Sow the seeds at a depth of 1 to 1.5 centimeter.

Water until the soil is moist. Keep the soil moist for the first few months.

Then Oregano will be able to grow even in dry conditions as it does in its natural habitat.

To keep oregano’s flavor and fragrance strong, you should avoid too much watering and the use of fertilizers.

Cut oregano branches regularly. This will help the plant to grow, but will also limit its uncontrolled growth.

Greek name: Ρίγανη.
