Q.Where may I purchase seeds or plants of Dittany of Crete (ornamental oregano)?

Zone Higganum, CT | CarolATheresa added on March 25, 2019 | Answered

In Connecticut, would it be best to grow in containers? Should they be brought indoors in a dark area to go dormant over winter, or should i just treat them as houseplants of the winter?
Thank you

You will want to grow these indoors, and treat them as a high light requirement houseplant, year round. As far as where to get them... We don't usually recommend specific places. You can check your local nurseries, or check online places like Amazon, Etsy, or Ebay.
