Golden Marjoram (medium)
By admin | |
A medium plant of golden marjoram - it has bright leaves and pink flowers in the summer, a soft herb perfect for salads or garnishing dishes. Marjorams are generally used fresh, unlike their close relation oregano, whose leaves are more likely to be dried and stored. Most marjorams also have a more delicate flavour. Leaves and flowering sprigs are popular in Greek and Italian meat dishes, soups, stuffings, tomato sauces and pasta, where they are best used towards the end of the cooking process. Leaves are used to flavour oil and vinegar. Where to plant and how to look after your plant Water pots regularly, but avoid overwatering or the roots may rot. Keep plants compact by trimming growth after flowers fade in summer, then give them a boost by applying a liquid fertiliser. Plants do not like to be too wet in winter, so place pots in a sheltered spot and raise onto pot feet to allow excess water to drain away. For a winter supply of leaves, lift plants in autumn, pot them up and place them in a well lit spot under cover. Cut back dead stems to the base. Back to the shop

Lemon Balm Plant (small)
By admin | |
A small lemon balm plant, cultivated at the Windmill Community Gardens using chemical free growing methods. Lemon balm is a bushy perennial herb with oval, lemon-scented leaves with scalloped edges, and leafy spikes of creamy-white or pale purple flowers in summer. Fresh or dried leaves can be used to make herb teas, while leaves will give a lemony kick to salads, sauces, vinegars and fish dishes – they are best used fresh, rather than cooked. Dried leaves are added to potpourris and herb pillows. How to grow and care for your lemon balm plant. Keep plants well watered, especially during dry spells in summer. Growing to around 80cm (32in), traditional lemon balm makes a mass of green leaves, but there are several showier cultivars available and plants that have a more compact habit of growth. In early summer, cut back variegated cultivars to encourage strongly coloured growth. Cut back plants after flowering to encourage a fresh flush of leaves. Rejuvenate congested clumps of lemon balm by lifting and dividing in the autumn. Protect plants in pots from excessive winter wet by moving into a sheltered position and raising up onto pot feet to allow excess moisture to drain away. Back to the shop
