Transplanting is recommended for these seeds. Optimal germination temperature for oregano seed is 65-70 degrees Fahrenheit. Surface sow seeds indoors 8-10 weeks before the last frost date. The seeds are light germinators, so it’s important to not cover the seeds. Keep moist until germination. Transplant after your last frost date into well-draining sandy soil.
