Shipping Information & Notes

Growing Information

Marjoram, Sweet

DAYS TO GERMINATION: 7-14 days.

SOWING: Transplant (recommended): Start seeds indoors 8-10 weeks before the last frost. Sow seeds on the surface of the growing medium, gently pressing them into the medium, as light is necessary for germination. Keep moist. Transplant into individual containers when seedlings are large enough to handle. Pinch out the growing tip of the plants to promote branching and higher yields. After the last frost, transplant out at 6-8" spacing in rows 18" apart.
Direct seed: Sow seeds after the last frost. Scatter the seeds, 2-3 seeds per inch, in a narrow band on top of the prepared soil and tamp gently into place, as seeds require light to germinate. Keep moist. Thin to stand 6-8" apart.

LIGHT PREFERENCE: Sun.

SOIL REQUIREMENTS:
Marjoram grows well in light soil of average fertility. It will not tolerate dry soils.

PLANT HEIGHT: 8-24".

PLANT SPACING: 6-8".

HARDINESS ZONES: Zones 9-11.

HARVEST: Cut entire plants just as they begin to flower. For drying, hang small bunches upside down in a well-ventilated, dry location out of direct sunlight.
