Marjoram, also called Sweet Marjoram, is a tender perennial herb grown as an annual. It has small, fuzzy, opposite, gray leaves on reddish stems.
Marjoram is tolerant of most conditions, it requires very little care. In the first few months ensure the plants do not dry out, but after they have become established they should cope well with drought. It needs well drained soil.
Pot Culture : Marjoram grows well in pots. A 8” to 10” pot is sufficient. Sow the seeds and keep in shade till germination. Gradually exposed to Sunlight and later kept in full Sun.
In Ground : You can transplant the seedlings into the ground after 2-3 weeks from germination at a distance of 30 cm between plants as well as rows.
Marjoram is ready for harvest within 65-75 days of sowing. Cut fresh leaves as needed once plants are 4 to 6 inches tall. Flavor is best before the plant flowers.
