Nature’s Remedy: Depresssion and hyprochandria are frequent problems today. Herbalists have always recommended Marjoram for this, to lower high blood pressure and combat headaches, and neuralgia. Much used as a tonic particularly after influenza and as a gentle mild laxative. Pour a cup of boiling water over 1 teaspoonful of fresh leaves, cover and leave for several minutes. Sweeten with honey if desired

Sowing – Sow from late winter to early summer 1.5mm (1/16in) deep in John Innes Seed Compost. Make sure the compost is moist but not wet, seal in a polythene bag until after germination which usually takes 14-21 days at 16-18C (60-65F).

Growing – Transplant when large enough to handle into 8cm (3in) pots. Later plant out 3cm (12in) apart in ordinary soil in full sun
