About Greek Oregano Plants

A true Greek oregano with a strong flavor! Greek oregano is a popular herb that is easy to grow and maintain, making it a great addition to any garden. This herb is native to the Mediterranean region and has a slightly different flavor profile than Italian oregano, with a slightly stronger and more pungent taste.

Once the plant is established, it can be harvested throughout the growing season. It is recommended to plant several plants to ensure a steady supply of fresh leaves. The leaves and stems can be snipped off and used fresh or dried for later use. Greek oregano is a staple herb in Greek cuisine, and it pairs well with lemon, garlic, and other Mediterranean flavors. It is commonly used in dishes such as pizza, tzatziki, and roasted meats.

How to Grow Greek Oregano

This variety grows low to the ground, making it a versatile plant for gardens and containers. This mat-forming oregano can act as a flavorful ground cover for edible landscaping!

One of the primary uses of Greek oregano in permaculture is as a companion plant. It can be planted alongside other plants to deter pests and attract beneficial insects. The strong aroma of the oregano plant can help repel harmful insects, while the delicate, edible flowers attract pollinators like bees and butterflies.

When planting Greek oregano, it is important to choose a location with full sun exposure and well-drained soil. The soil should be enriched with compost or other organic matter to provide the herb with the necessary nutrients.

It grows as a perennial plant in hardiness zones 4 through 9 but can also grow as an indoor plant or kitchen herb in cooler zones. When growing this herb indoors, be sure to give it plenty of light.
