Harvest flowers: Harvest flowers as they begin to dry. Oregano flowers will not all dry at the same time, so keep a close watch to make sure they don't drop seed before you've collected them.
Dry: Secure flower heads in bundles using string or rubber band and hand upside down to dry for 2-3 weeks.
Extract Seeds: Once flowers have completely dried, shake flower heads in bag to free any seeds still in the flowers. Separate seed from chaff.
Label and store: Store seeds in a small sealed container and place in a dry and cool location. Oregano seeds usually remain viable for 3-5 years.
Oregano is a delicious herb that thrives in full sun and well-drained soil. Plant oregano after the last frost. Oregano can also be started inside and moved to your garden after two sets of leaves have sprouted. The plant will flourish in the summer and be ready to enjoy.
