What Customers Say

Why Oregano Needs Specialized Nutrients

Oregano requires specific nutrients like nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium (N-P-K) in balanced proportions to support its aromatic oils and robust flavor profile. 


Ensure the soil is consistently moist but well-drained, allowing it to dry slightly between waterings to prevent root rot.


To promote vigorous growth and maximize essential oil production, place oregano in a sunny location with at least 6-8 hours of direct sunlight daily.


Use well-draining, sandy loam soil with a pH between 6.0 and 7.0 enriched with organic matter to support oregano's nutrient uptake and aromatic development.
