How to grow marjoram
Sow marjoram on the soil surface in pots and transplant seedings to 25cm apart. You can also dig up and split established clumps of marjoram in the spring.
Choose well drained soil in a sunny site.
Water marjoram well until it has established. Remove growing tips to encourage bushy plants and cut back stems to 5cm in late summer to prompt new leaves for winter protection
Harvesting and using marjoram
Pick marjoram leaves before the flower buds open for using fresh or for freezing or drying. Marjoram is evergreen so will keep a mat of leaves over winter. It is a perennial herb so will crop year after year.
