Marjoram is an annual plant that grows 25 to 30 centimetres in height. This variety is started by planting it or sowing the seeds directly into the soil. The dried leaves are commonly used for seasoning soups, minced meat, poultry and fish. Marjoram is also recognised as a medicinal plant; its essence oil is used in the production of a balm, which is used as a remedy for a runny nose.
Growing: sow the seeds in planter boxes or in covered pallet planters in March. The seeds germinate in 7 to 14 days at 20-25°C. Plant out directly into the soil in mid-May; plant out every 2 to 3 plants in 25x20cm spacings. The herbs are ready to be harvested twice; from late June to early July and in early autumn. This variety grows best in fertile humus soils that are sufficiently moist.
