Thompson & Morgan Herb Sweet Marjoram
Cooking: Mild and sweet it is delicious in stuffings, soups, stews, omelettes, cheese dishes, fish sauces and salads. Sprinkle over pork, mutton, liver and veal before roasting and add to melted butter to garnish vegetables. Companion Plant: Sow with Broccoli to repel the cabbage butterfly. Nature's Remedy: Depresssion and hyprochandria are frequent problems today. Herbalists have always recommended Marjoram for this, to lower high blood pressure and combat headaches, and neuralgia. Much used as a tonic particularly after influenza and as a gentle mild laxative. Pour a cup of boiling water over 1 teaspoonful of fresh leaves, cover and leave for several minutes. Sweeten with honey if desired

Transplant when large enough to handle into 8cm (3in) pots. Later plant out 3cm (12in) apart in ordinary soil in full sun
