1 Italian Oregano, 1 Swiss Mint, 1 Turmeric, and 1 West Indian Lemongrass (4 plants total). Certified organic.

Italian Oregano (Origanum vulgare) has been used for centuries for a whole slew of maladies including, but not limited to, the common cold and flu. Our Oregano plants are growing in 4″ pots and prefers a sunny spot; however, in zone 7 and farther south, it benefits from a little afternoon shade. Oregano spreads easily; in late spring, cut it back to one-third of its size in order to make the plant bushier. In milder climates (zone 8 and southward), oregano is evergreen. In zone 7 and northward, protect plants with mulch through the winter, or cover them with a cold frame. Small plants in containers can be moved indoors for the winter. Cut out dead stems in the spring before the plants begin new growth. USDA hardiness zones 5-10. Can be grown indoors or outdoors
