What is Golden Oregano? 

Oregano is a fragrant Mediterranean herb that looks a treat in cottage and elegant gardens, pots and apartment spaces. 

Unlike other Oregano varieties, Golden Oregano only shows its white flowers occasionally, but its striking chartreuse green leaves make a statement by themselves.  While it looks similar to Golden Marjoram, it has smaller round leaves and forms more of a mound. 

This variety is very low growing and has gorgeous lime green leaves.    It will grow into a carpet of green, reaching 20 - 30 cm high and 45 cm wide.

Culinary Uses for Golden Oregano

Oregano is a year-round favourite that is often used in French, English and even Middle Eastern cooking. Add the leaves at the end of cooking to ensure maximum flavour.

Oregano taste similar to Thyme, but sweeter, and with a stronger scent.  Try it with grilled fish, roasted vegetables, or tomato-based sauces. 

Growing Conditions - Golden Oregano 

Plant perennial Oregano in a sunny or part shady spot with free draining soil. (Celery, onions, peas and radishes are good companion plants for Oregano.)  While this easy-care plant will withstand dry conditions, it pays to water young plants regularly when young.  

Protect Oregano from frosts and wind until established. It will thrive in summer, die back a little in the winter and then gain a new leash on life the following spring. Although Oregano spreads a little, it can easily be divided or cut back to keep it manageable.

      We offer a replacement guarantee

      To give you peace of mind, we offer a replacement guarantee if your plants do not arrive in good condition.  If there is a problem please let us know as soon as you receive your package and we will work with you to resolve it.

      What will postage cost?

      Postage varies by region, and by parcel size/weight. 

      Customers are asked to choose the correct postage option at checkout (urban or rural). 

      If you order a worm farm or garden bed and plants in the same order, the postage for the worm farm will be added to the postage for the other items.  (These items are dispatched from separate locations.)

      How often do you dispatch?

      To reduce the risk of plants sitting in a courier depot over weekends, we usually ship orders on a Monday, Tuesday or Thursday (except public holidays).   

      How do you package your products?

      We take extra care to water plants well and drain them before sending.  Plants are shipped in specially designed packaging, designed to reduce the risk of damage in transit. Trees and bushes are securely wrapped in paper to reduce risk of soil escaping during transit.  They are well supported with scrunched up paper to prevent movement during transit.  


      Where do you deliver to? 

      We deliver to most locations in the North Island - you can order and make payment via our website, Facebook or Instagram stores.  

      South Island, Waiheke and Great Barrier

      While we deliver to the South Island, we ask customers in these locations to email us for a quote:  Shipping to the South Island can be expensive and is extremely variable by location - we like to avoid nasty shocks at checkout! 

      We don’t generally ship to Waiheke, Great Barrier except by special arrangement. (Delivery can be expensive, and we want to ensure that our live plants arrive in good condition.)  If items are small and non-perishable (such as seeds) delivery may be possible.  Contact us to discuss options:

      Do you deliver to post office boxes?

      Unfortunately live products like plants, garden beds and worm farms can't be delivered to Post Office Boxes. Large items (like garden furniture) are delivered to the nearest freight depot for customer pickup if outside of Auckland.
