Is this Oregano??

I recently took up gardening (this year). I got seeds from Home Dept this summer and planted oregano. In the picture the middle plant is supposed to be oregano and around it is scallions. I've never seen oregano like this. I've been researching the web and all the pictures I see don't look anything like this! I will also like to add that after a month I fertilized all of my plants using again Home Depot fertilizer high in potassium. Please help ..

I would say definitely not oregano. It looks more like a leaf lettuce to me.

RE: Is this Oregano??

Perhaps an oak-leaf variety of lettuce.


RE: Is this Oregano??

There is a bit of leaf visible between the 2 lettuce leaves at 3 o'clock. There is an outside chance that it is Oregano growing underneath the lettuce.
