Wonderful herb for cooking with taste similar to Oregano, but milder and sweet! Can be used fresh or dried.
You can either start marjoram in seed trays or you can direct sow them into the soil.
If sowing in a seed tray simply start them indoors 4 to 6 weeks before setting them in the garden. Keep soil moist and at a temperature around 68 to 70 degrees until they emerge. They should emerge in 8 to 14 days. Make sure they can receive daily light once they have sprouted. Once danger of frost has past plant them in well drained soil about 12 to 16 inches apart.
If direct sowing plant them as soon as danger of frost has passed. Plant seeds in well drained soil. Once they emerge thin down to one plant every 12 to 16 inches or so. Easy to grow doesn't mind sandy soils. Harvest leaves and enjoy.
