Marjoram (Origanum Marjorana Blattmojaran) 600 seeds (#1128)

Majoram is a popular seasoning for sausages and meat. It makes fat food more easily digestible.
Majoram is antipasmodic and nerve-strengthening. In tea it is used to treat colds.
The aromatic foliage of this Mediterranean native has been used in regional cooking for centuries. Sweet marjoram leaves are used fresh or dried and lend a spicy, sweet, almost piney flavor that compliments vegetables, sauces and meats. Overall, the taste is milder than that of standard oregano. It is a shrubby perennial herb that’s evergreen and semi-woody in frost-free climates and deciduous in its northernmost hardiness zones. It spreads by rhizomes and can become quite aggressive if not divided regularly.
This clump-forming herb has upright, branched stems bearing oval, slightly hairy, gray-green leaves. In early to midsummer, clusters of small flowers appear at the stem tips. The tubular, two-lipped blooms may be lavender-pink or white and are supported by gray-green bracts (petal-like leaves). The lightly fragrant flowers are much loved by butterflies and bees. Cut off the dying blooms to prevent seed development and encourage foliar growth.
Grow sweet marjoram in full sun and well-drained soil with average fertility. Neutral to alkaline soil is preferred. Divide plants every two or three years, and share the divisions with herb-loving friends. Marjoram tolerates some drought once established and tends to grow poorly where summers are highly moist and humid. It is only moderately hardy, much less so than standard oregano, and especially intolerant of cold, wet winter weather.

GERMINATION INSTRUCTIONS
Optimal temperature for germination is 22-25C.
After the initial watering under mist, trays should be kept evenly moist but not saturated with water, and humidity should be 85%. Germination occurs in 7-14 days.
Light levels can be at ambient greenhouse levels throughout the germination and growing on stages. If a germination chamber is used, light is not required to promote germination, but enough light is needed to prevent seedlings from stretching until the trays are moved to the greenhouse.
