Greek Oregano, native to Greece and Turkey, bears especially flavorful leaves and has a long history of culinary use. Philadelphia nurseryman Bernard McMahon listed Winter Sweet Marjoram (O. heracleoticum), a synonym of Greek Oregano, in The American Gardener's Calendar (1806). In 1820, George Divers sent Thomas Jefferson "Marjoram", which was another name for Oregano at the time, instead of the “"Sweet Marjoram"” (Origanum hortensis) requested by Jefferson.

Sow seeds indoors 6-8 weeks before last frost date at 70 degrees F. Transplant to 3" pots once they have several true leaves, then harden off and plant outdoors after last frost in well-drained to dry soil. Approximately 250-300 seeds per packet.
