Description

Sweet Marjoram is an incredibly flavored herb and medicinal plant similar to oregano but sweeter. Sweet Marjoram grows as a happy perennial in Zones 9 and 10 and as a hardy perennial in other areas. This herb has edible flowers and foliage and attracts beneficial insects.

Where to grow: Transplanting the seed is recommended. In Zones 9 and 10, late winter and early spring seeds can be sown into containers in a protected area. Seeds are very small and should be sown close to the service. We recommend sowing them on top of the soil and using a spray bottle to wet them and keep them in place, then using a sifter to finely dust the top of the seeds. Seeds that are too heavily covered with soil will not germinate well.

Attracts: Attracts hummingbirds, butterflies, honey bees, and beneficial insects.

Culinary Uses: Use just like Oregano.

Medicinal uses: Like Oregano, this herb has antibacterial and anti-fungal properties. We love to put it in teas, make tinctures, and hand creams.

Soil: Adaptable to various soil types, but needs good drainage and can benefit from a bit of bloom fertilizer.

    Tried this herb because I like Oregano. It’s so tasty. I did have trouble seed starting because the seed is so small. Make sure you sow close to the surface. The second try was successful.
