How to grow marjoram in pots or window boxes


Marjoram is a herbaceous herb with many offshoots. It is related to oregano plant.

You can plant marjoram seeds in pots (30 cm in diameter) or get seedlings from a nursery store and transplant them.

If you choose the seed method, you should plant the marjoram seeds in early spring. There is no need to cover the seeds with soil. Just drop them on the surface. Place the pots where the sun can see them. In about 2 weeks you will see the marjoram seeds germinate.

In general, marjoram requires little care.

During the first few months you will need to make sure that the soil is constantly moist. After this period, you can water less frequently.

Greek name: Μαντζουράνα.
