Care & Harvest

Bundle of Sweet Marjoram on a white background

🌱 Germination: Germination and true leaf growth can be slow. If your yCube has sprouted but true leaves have not formed, or if it has sprouted but roots are not visible after 14 days since you first saw it sprout, add the yCube to your Gardyn with plant food in it to help kick start its next phase of growth!

💡Temperature: Prefers mild temperatures (60-70°F).

✂️ Pruning: Remove leaves with brown spots if they appear. Check the roots monthly and trim any that are brown or extending past the yPod. Snip flowers as they appear to extend the plant’s life. 

🌿 Harvest: Harvesting frequently helps prolong the plant’s life. Pinch off individual leaves, or use clean shears to cut stems above growth nodes. Only harvest stems when they reach at least 4-6 inches tall, and leave 1/3 of the plant behind to ensure continuous growth.

Quick Facts

Sweet Marjoram is native to the Middle East and often called Syrian Oregano, as its Latin name indicates. Also known as zaatar, it is not to be confused with Za’atar, which is instead an herbal blend. Some believe Sweet Marjoram is the hyssop referred to in the Old Testament of the Bible, and thus is also often referred to as Bible hyssop.

Sweet Marjoram looks similar to oregano with small, fuzzy, green leaves. It’s commonly touted to be a strong neuroprotectant, antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and antispasmodic.

Use dried or fresh Sweet Marjoram leaves as you would oregano. Its flavor is complex and a combination of oregano and thyme. Add to sauces or dressings for flavor complexity, soups or stocks to increase savoriness, or as a garnish for an herbal zing.
