    How to Grow Marjoram

    When to Plant Marjoram Seeds

    Start indoors 6-8 weeks before the last frost of the season or sow directly into the garden after the last frost of the season.

    Where to Plant Marjoram Seeds

    Marjoram thrives in drier soils that are well drained with access to full sun (6-8 hours of sun per day). Marjoram suffers and often dies in poorly drained soils that are consistently wet or moist, as well as humid environments.

    How to Plant Marjoram Seeds

    When started indoors, transplant into the garden 8-12 inches apart. When grown from seed, spread onto moistened soil via broadcasting. Do not cover seeds in soil deeper than 1/8th of an inch, as sunlight is needed for proper germination. Thin out weaker seedlings until plants are 8-12 inches apart.

    How to Harvest Marjoram

    When plant reaches 4-6 inches tall, begin to snip fresh leaves. For best flavor, harvest before the plant flowers and extend harvest time by removing buds as they appear.
