Sweet Marjoram (Origanum majorana syn. Marjorana horte) Herb in 9cm Pot 

This herb has a fabulous smell and is a worthy addition to the herb garden. With an upright habit, Origanum majorana produces highly aromatic downy, round, pale grey-green leaves, and can grow to 30cm tall x 30cm. Sweet Marjoram prefers a light well-drained soil, in a sunny position and does not particularly enjoy prolonged wet winters. Also known as Knotted Marjoram or Knot Marjoram, small knots of white flowers are produced in Summer.  Ideal for the front of a border in your herb garden or herbaceous border, a rock or gravel garden,great as an edging plant and good ground cover,  it's also happy in a container. Trim regularly to encourage new growth and keep a good shape.

Herb Usage

Used in culinary dishes especially Mediterranean style food, Sweet Marjoram has a much more delicate flavour than oregano, and is one of the main constituents of Bouquet Garni. Sweet Marjoram is used extensively in tomato dishes, and is a main constituent in the commercial production of Pizzas. The leaf is good for drying, as it retains a lot of its scent and flavour.
