Description

The Kew Pollinators range of seeds from Thompson and Morgan has been specially created alongside the experts at Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew to attract and support a wide range of pollinators, including bees, butterflies and beetles, as well as a number of other important pollinating insects. Helping these pollinators to thrive is hugely important for our eco-system as a whole and these seeds, in their striking packaging inspired by artwork from the Kew archives, will help to create the environment which they need to thrive, with varieties chosen to help a wide range of pollinating insects, including some night flowering plants to help moths which also play an important part in our gardens.

This aromatic herb is better known as Oregano, a staple ingredient of Italian cuisine! This hardy perennial is easy to grow, forming a mound of fragrant foliage and nectar-rich, pink flowers in summer, which are loved by bees and other pollinating insects. Wild Marjoram makes a useful addition to the herb garden but works equally well in wildlife areas and perennial borders, bringing colour and fragrance to the garden and flavouring your favourite dishes in the kitchen. Height and spread: 45cm (18").

Sowing

Sow oregano seeds indoors or under glass from February to June. Sow seed 1.5cm (¾”) deep in pots or trays on the surface of barely moist seed compost and cover with a sprinkling of finely sieved compost. Place the seed tray in a propagator at a temperature of 16-21C (61-70F) or seal inside a clear polythene bag until germination which takes 14 - 21 days.

When seedlings are large enough to handle, transplant into 7.5cm (3") pots and grow on in cooler conditions. When all risk of frost has passed, gradually acclimatise oregano plants to outdoor conditions over 7 - 10 days before planting outdoors. Plant oregano at a distance of 30cm (12”) apart on any well drained or chalky soil in full sun.

More Info
Once established oregano requires little aftercare, and only occasional watering during particularly dry periods. In autumn, apply a mulch of leaf mould or compost for extra winter protection from frosts.
