First as always you need to get quality seed from a well known commercial seed company.

I usually don't recommend buying plants from Walmart

but you can get Burpee Seeds from the Atlee Burpee Seeds rack

that is in the Walmart garden center store. You can get lots of different

kind of herbs from the Burpee seed rack at your local Walmart Super Center.

See this way you can buy a small amount of seeds for the home gardener.

Now after you get your oregano seed this is what you do to get started

You need as always a good germination mix to start your oregano seed.

Then you should have a plug tray to start your seed in.

So you are asking what is a plug tray that is a plastic tray or flat

That haves about thirty two or more holes in the plastic tray

that was about a inch and a half deep. now take your germination mix and fill

the plug holes with the mixture. Then take the fill plug tray and soak it and

let it set and drain. Now the next step is to sow seeds of oregano in

the plugs tray with a hand seeder. About 6 to 8 seeds per plug after you are

done mist the seed flat and set it on the greenhouse bench or under a

grow light and propagating mat. Its takes about 10 to 14 days unstill

the seeds germinated. After that wait until your plants get there true leaves

until you transplant them into bigger pots. The pot size should be 4 inch

round or square pots. When potting them into these 4 inch pots use a soilless

mixture for growing your plants on. And water very well.
