- Watering: Use a water sprayer to moisten the soil. Keep it consistently moist during the germination period.
- Germination: Marjoram seeds typically germinate within 7-14 days when kept in a warm and well-lit environment. Once the seedlings have grown large enough to handle and the danger of frost has passed, usually in late spring, they can be transplanted outdoors.
- Provide Adequate Light: Place the containers in a warm spot with indirect sunlight or under grow lights. Marjoram seeds typically germinate in 7-14 days.
- Transplanting: Choose a location with well-drained soil and full sunlight. Transplant the seedlings, spacing them according to the specific variety’s recommendations. Ensure that the soil has warmed up, and the threat of frost has passed.
- Watering and Care: Marjoram prefers well-draining soil with a slightly alkaline pH. Water the plants consistently, keeping the soil evenly moist but not waterlogged.
- Harvesting: You can start harvesting marjoram leaves once the plants have reached a sufficient size, usually around 60-90 days after sowing. Harvesting encourages bushier growth.
By following these steps, you can successfully plant marjoram seeds and enjoy a bountiful harvest of this flavourful herb. Whether you choose to grow marjoram indoors or outdoors, providing the right conditions will contribute to the plant’s health and productivity.
How to harvest marjoram?
- Wait Until Established: Allow your marjoram plants to become established before harvesting. This is typically after the plants have reached a height of 6 to 8 inches (15-20 cm).
- Choose the Right Time: The best time to harvest marjoram is just before the plants start to flower. This is when the essential oil content is at its peak, providing the best flavour.
- Harvest in the Morning: For the most intense flavour, harvest marjoram in the morning after the dew has dried but before the heat of the day. This is when the essential oils are most concentrated.
- Use Pruning Shears or Scissors: Snip off the stems using pruning shears or sharp scissors. Cut just above a set of leaves, leaving a small portion of the stem intact. This encourages bushier growth.
- Avoid Harvesting More Than One-Third: When harvesting, avoid removing more than one-third of the plant at a time. This ensures that the plant remains healthy and continues to produce new growth.
- Regular Harvesting: Marjoram benefits from regular harvesting throughout the growing season. This not only provides you with fresh herbs but also helps the plant maintain a compact and bushy form.
- Harvest Leaves, Not Stems: Focus on harvesting the leaves rather than the stems. The leaves contain the most flavour, and removing them stimulates the plant to produce more.
- Drying Marjoram: If you want to preserve marjoram for later use, consider drying the harvested leaves. Tie small bunches of marjoram stems together and hang them upside down in a cool, dark, and well-ventilated area. Once dry, remove the leaves and store them in an airtight container.
