Description

Marjoram is a perennial, non-hardy culinary herb from the labiates family with a growth height of 30 to 60 cm. It tastes similar to oregano and the leaves are used fresh and dried for seasoning.

Origin:

Southern Europe, North Africa, Asia Minor

Growing tips

With direct seeding the plant takes a long time to develop, so you better prefer seedlings and plant them in the bed. Marjoram loves full sun and needs a lot of water, because it forms only weak roots. Flowering lasts 25-30 days, during which the aroma of the shoots is the strongest.
