Staple in my cooking when I want a milder flavour than oregano. Love the golden leaves and spreading nature. Doesn't get as tall as oregano, tending to lay flatteron the ground.

I have one in the ground (shown in the picture) and one in the mulberry pot so that it doesn't get out competed by anything else and so that I can be sure where it is (some times in the year the golden colour reduces and it can be hard to tell which is oregano and which is marjoram!).

I have noticed that it hates having any liquid fertiliser on its leaves - burns them really quickly no matter the concentration. So I always make sure to give it a light water after fertilising to make sure it all gets washed off.
