Origanum Majorana (Sweet Marjoram)
Height: 60 - 90cm

Perennial herbs usually grown as annuals for their fragrant foliage which is used to flavor dressings and meat dishes. Sweet Marjoram will grow well in any fertile, well- drained and loamy garden soil. Since the seed is very small, it is best sown in flats in the greenhouse and the seedlings transplanted outside after all danger of frost has passed. Wild Marjoram is thought to smell more like thyme but will grow well even in poor soil. Although it's leaves are used to flavor some dishes, most chefs do not consider Wild Marjoram as useful as Sweet Marjoram in the kitchen. Wild Marjoram is easity started by seed or root division.
