Marjoram Compact is a neat dwarf form of Pot Marjoram with dark green leaves and pink flowers in summer.

Prefers full sun, or partial shade with free-draining soil or compost. Enjoys being in pots and gardens for easy reach to make the most of the textures, fragrance and flavours.

About the Marjoram 'Family': A perennial herb from the Lamiaceae family which is native to the Mediterranean. Marjoram has smooth, slightly hairy, even leaves which are usually a rich green in colour and are very aromatic. The leaves have a subtle, sweet flavour similar to Oregano but often softer and less spicy. Marjoram has many culinary uses from flavouring meat and fish dishes to making a herbal tea and is used widely in Greek and Italian cuisines. The leaves are usually added towards the end of cooking a dish as heating them for too long will cook the flavour away.

    Our pot & plant size explained

    At Newlands Nursery we grow and sell plants in a variety of different sizes, from small starter plants up to planted containers. 

    We know it can be tricky to picture the size of each plant. This page gives you an idea of the size of the plants we are sending out.

    Please keep in mind that plants vary from one season to the next. The size of the plant refers to the pot or plug it is grown in, rather than the height of the plant, unless specifically mentioned on the plant page.

    Starter Plant (Plug Plant)

    Plug Size: 2cm by 4cm. Our most popular size. This is often the most economical way of buying plants and is a great way to get a head start on the season. Generally this size is best to be potted up before planting out.
