Oregano is a fragrant Mediterranean herb - great for pizzas and pasta sauces.  It is a low growing plant that loves to spread out, so it is ideal for a rockery or a sunny garden spot.

Urban Bounty Oregano seedlings come in a 1.5 litre pot - perfect for that empty space in your kitchen garden!  

What is Oregano?

Oregano is an aromatic Mediterranean herb that looks a treat in cottage and elegant gardens, pots and apartment spaces. The bees love its pale pink flowers.  

Culinary Uses for Oregano

Oregano is a kitchen favourite often used in Greek, European and even Mexican cooking. This herb is slightly punchier than its cousin, Marjoram. We love it in pizza sauces or in a 'Tex-Mex' style dry steak rub.  

Growing Conditions - Oregano

Plant perennial Oregano from spring through to autumn.  It will thrive in summer, die back a little in the winter and then gain a new leash on life the following summer.

This herb is easy care - simply plant it in a sunny spot with free draining soil. Although it will withstand a short dry spell, it pays to water your seedlings regularly when young. Protect it from frosts and also the wind until established. It will grow into a small bush of about 40 cm wide and 25cm high.  Tomatoes, Capsicum and Basil are good companion plants for Oregano.  

 

      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.) 

      If you live in the South Island, Waiheke or Great Barrier Island, please contact us for a custom shipping quote: info@urbanbounty.co.nz 

      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: info@urbanbounty.co.nz  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: info@urbanbounty.co.nz

      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.
