Common Problems

1. Why is my herb dying?
Always look for the early signs of any insect/fungal/ any other infections. Spay appropriate fungicides or pesticides as soon as any symptoms of such diseases are spotted. Watch out for snails and slugs.

2. Why is my herb not growing?
Herbs are cool season plants. They struggle to grow in hot climatic situations. Also waterlogging in the soil is also harmful to plants. Use well drained potting soil for growing your herbs.

3. How often do you water marjoram?
Keep plants well-watered during the growing season, especially during dry spells. Plants need about 1 inch of rain per week during the growing season. Use a rain gauge to check to see if you need to add water.

4. Should you let marjoram flower?
Once you have a marjoram plant blooming fully, the flavor of the leaves isn't going to be as good. It's still perfectly safe to eat them, though, along with the flowers, which taste like a milder version of the leaves. You can also harvest seeds from the spent blooms for more of this delightful herb.

Frequently Asked Questions

How often do you water marjoram?

Keep plants well-watered during the growing season, especially during dry spells. Plants need about 1 inch of rain per week during the growing season. Use a rain gauge to check to see if you need to add water.

Does marjoram come back every year?

Marjoram (Origanum majorana) is a perennial herb usually grown as an annual for the fragrant foliage which is used to flavor dressings and meat dishes. The tops of the plants are usually cut as they start to flower and are best dried slowly in full shade.

Is marjoram the same as oregano?

While the oval, flat green leaves of these mint-family herbs are often confused for one another, each one has a distinct smell and flavor that sets it apart. Oregano tends to be pungent and spicy, while more mild marjoram is floral and woodsy.
