Origanum vulgare ‘Aureum’
Gorgeous golden leaved Marjoram with pretty mauve flowers to bring a little sunshine into your day! The fragrant leaves work well to give an extra punch to meat and vegetable dishes. Marjoram has a high thymol content, meaning its a great antiseptic. Use in teas to ease a bad cold and settle upset stomachs, chew a leaf if you have a toothache.
Grow in a sunny position with some shade at midday, prune back hard after flowering. Try and avoid wetting the leaves when you water.
Single herb plant in a 15cm Italian terracotta pot, with a matching saucer. Planted in a peat-free compost mix with added vermiculite for extra drainage.
