If you want to grow Greek Oregano from seed this is what you have to do if you want to be successful with growing this herb from seed.
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.
