Wild Marjoram

£5.95Price
  • Origanum Vulgare

     

    5 Jumbo plug plants

     

    A very attractive nectar and pollen rich plant for bees, butterflies and other pollinators.

     

    Tip: The Small Copper butterfly finds Wild Marjoram very attractive, so by planting it next to Sorrel (it’s food plant), it will encourage them to stay.

     

    An aromatic herb which compliments tomato dishes. 

    Not to be confused with the more commonly used Pot Marjoram (Origanum majorana), with paler flowers that is much less hardy.
