RHS perfect for pollinators
Perfect for pollinators

Wild Marjoram -origanum vulgare – grows best in dry grassland and is well suited to chalk and limestone soils on sites where there is plenty of sunlight. However it is quite adaptable and in gardens can also be grown on heavier soils in semi-shade. Wild Marjoram is one of the best wildflowers for insects and in high summer will be alive with butterflies and the hum of bees. In the wild it also hosts the Large Blue as a breeding butterfly that will lay its eggs on the plant. Wild Marjoram is a low growing plant with rose pink flowers that appear from July to September. It looks best growing with other chalk and limestone plants that flower in the summer months such as Common Rock Rose, Greater Knapweed, Wild Basil, Harebells, Wild Thyme and Small Scabious.

How to grow Wild Marjoram Seeds
Wild Marjoram seeds should be sown in spring or autumn, either outside, where they are to flower, or in seed trays and covered lightly with compost. Wild Marjoram seeds are usually easy to germinate and the seedlings can be pricked out and grown on, for planting out later in the year.

RHS Perfect for Pollinators.
The RHS Perfect for Pollinators mark is only given to plants that support pollinating insects in gardens. Bees, butterflies, moths, hoverflies and many others visit flowers to feed on nectar and pollen; while doing so they transfer pollen and increase seed set and fruit development.
