ORIGANUM VULGARE 'GREENSLEEVES'
This attractive green-leaved form of "marjoram" or "oregano" should be in every herb garden or border, with stubby spikes of perfumed, pale mauve-pink flowers being produced almost constantly from spring until late summer. The leaves may be dried for winter use as a fragrant herb.
For best results, sow immediately onto a good soil-based compost. Cover the seeds with fine grit or compost to approximately their own depth. They can be sown at any time, and germination can sometimes be quicker if kept at 15 to 20 degrees C. We sow most seeds in an unheated greenhouse and wait for natural germination, as many seeds have built-in dormancy mechanisms, often waiting for natural spring germination, hence giving them a full season of growth.
