Sweet Marjoram - Two Plants
Sweet Marjoram, also known as Knotted Marjoram, is one of the most popular Mediterranean herbs grown for its culinary and medicinal value. It has a delicate, sweet flavor and subtle pungent taste not unlike Oregano. The leaves are used to season soups, stews, dressings, sauces, Italian dishes and Greek dishes. When using Marjoram in cooking, add the herb before serving as it loses its flavor over extended cooking times. As a medicinal tea, sweet marjoram will soothe an upset stomach. It has anti-microbial properties too, and can be used as a skin wash. The tiny leaves pack a powerhouse of vitamins from Vitamin C, A, K and beta carotene to minerals like iron, calcium, potassium, manganese, copper, zinc and magnesium.

Sweet Marjoram prefers a full sun location with a rich well-draining soil. The plants will reach 12” to 24” tall, when full grown. Trim plants when buds appear and before flowering to ensure continued plant growth. In most areas Marjoram will not survive the winter outdoors, so if planted in pots they can be wintered indoors (and you will have fresh herbs all winter long too!)
