Plant marjoram seeds for a taste of the Mediterranean. It is historically one of the most popular herbs for culinary and medicinal uses. Marjoram is a close relative of Oregano but has a more delicate flavour. It is easily dried and is a key ingredient in Herbes de Provence. Marjoram's mildly, spicy flavour has made it a favourite herb for German, Italian, Greek, and French cooking. Marjoram seeds grow into a tender perennial plant that grows freely. Shear the plant regularly to promote new growth. The flowers are edible. The aroma of marjoram makes it a popular scent for body care products such as soap and lotions.
